Communication in language and touch"Tension originates in the mind. The body reflects the degree of tension that exists in the mind." Dr. Milton Trager
This course covers and delves into the four areas of practitioner development: attitude and communication, mentastics, table work and professional behaviour. Time is spent on further developing both sincerity and compassion in self-assessment and talking and writing about the work. The aim is to find ways to break unwanted habits, particularly in relation to use of the body, relationship with clients and professional presentation.
