Movement, play and interaction with children (8-12 years / 13-16 years)

- Movement, play and interaction with children (8-12 years / 13-16 years)

Module 5

In this innovative approach to health and education work with infants, children and adolescents, development and learning processes are explored through the physical and practical perspective of a selection of Somatic methodologies. 

While most 8/9 year olds still like to move, their motivation decreases with each passing year.
By incorporating age appropriate development principles and social aspects in the movement based games offered, we preserve the space for creativity and play by meeting the child exactly where they are in their own process of development and understanding. We will explore working with frustration and resistance. An important part of this workshop is the issue of touch and the development of sexuality.
