Description

Efforts to expand the scope of research on the Feldenkrais Method® are continuing around the world. This workshop brings together active researchers (Feldenkrais® practitioners and others), people who have ideas for research projects but need guidance, and people who are looking for ways to support Feldenkrais Method research but need an outlet for their energy. We will look at different types of research strategies including survey, qualitative and experimental research. The process will include short presentations and discussions in small and large group formats. The goal is to present a productive networking opportunity to support ongoing and future research efforts.
