Teachers couple (Netherlands Windesheim) Fred Dijk and (France ISRP-Marseille) Sylvie Belbin:
Workshop Summerschool “Move to be connected.”
People have the ability to connect with 3 phenomena: material, self and other.
People connect at first through the senses, physically, by sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch, thermoception (heat, cold), nociception (extreme changes e.g. pain), balance and proprioception (position of joins, muscle tension).
So in this French-Dutch cooperation workshop you will experience and practice several methods such as mindfulness, physical percussion, sensori motricity and ACT with which you can help clients to (re)connect and interact.
Teachers couple (Netherlands HAN) Olivier Glas and (Portugal FMH) Cristina Espadinha:
A common subject in every kind of psychomotor therapy is work alliance. Work alliance can be devided in three elements: agreement about the goal, agreement about the approach (the way to achieve the goal) and a certain affection between therapist and client. Psychomotor therapists are supposed to have a special quality in establishing a good (may be excellent) work alliance by using movement and body experience.
In the lectures of Cristina and Olivier, the work alliance will be explained, experienced and trained in relation with two different contexts. Cristina will connect work alliance to the context visually disabled clients. Olivier will connect work alliance to the context of clients with severe mental illness in combination with sedentary behavior.
Teachers couple (Switzerland HfH) Michèle Schumacher & (Danmark VIA) Dorte Wahlberg Feil
Move to be – from cradle to cradle
How can we continue to move and have a harmonious body development in our life, as individuals, as pairs and as a larger group? How can we develop movement in a biological way embedded in a psychological and social context? What is flow in movement and how can we work on that practically?
Our workshop focus is on the human body and the ability to move. The work will both be theoretical and practical. The main topics will be body, weight, space but also include theory about muscles, joints, axis and laterality. It is important for the psychomotrician working with body development, to know how to accompany their clients in their movement flow.
The students will be encouraged to experiment for themselves and with the group. The teaching will also include mindfulness exercises and energizers.
Workshop “SensoRelaxation” by Dieneke Jol (Netherlands Windesheim):
In this workshop a method that is called “SensoRelaxation” will be demonstrated and practiced. It is about relaxation based on sensory stimulation. It will become clear that it is not primarily about relaxation, but about the ability to recognize and regulate tension and relaxation.
The method can be distinguished from most other relaxation techniques by its focus on direct physical contact, tactile and visual observation and because it checks the client’s experiences against those of the therapist. The therapist registers the tension signals through tactile and kinaesthetic information, obtained by touch, holding and/or passively moving one or more parts of the body. The actions of the therapist within this intervention lead to consultation between client and therapist, during which they exchange ideas, opinions and experiences concerning the observed tension signals.
Workshop Rohnrad by Paul Verschuur (Netherlands Windesheim):
In this workshop called ‘Rohnrad’, you all will get an introduction in Rohnrad and how to use it in the psychomotor therapy. Rohnrad is a part of gymnastics originated in Germany. A Rohnrad is a huge wheel which can be used for different trics while rolling. In a secure environment you all may try to roll and perhaps you will do a turnover. Please make sure you all wear flexible clothes.
