Description

Workshop participants will understand that embodied learning across the lifespan is grounded on the developmental processes of infancy. They will acquire strategies for improving the functioning of infants and children with developmental and motor difficulties. At birth most infants have an astonishing movement repertoire that is principally engaged for experience, exploration and rapid learning. The infants’ use of these essential early movement resources for the construction of a unique repertoire of advanced skills requires a complex dynamic system that allows for selection, variation, experimentation and integration. This workshop will focus on a view from the beginning – examining how from the start the infant’s movement, sensations, and growth, sets the stage for a highly individual, self-organized life long embodied learning.

This workshop is intended for a professional audience. Professionals are individuals trained in disciplines relating to human development (such as teachers or other educators, psychologists and psychotherapists), in performance (including sports and the arts), and health care. Professionals include practitioners, researchers and administrators in these fields.
