"What could be easier, what could be freer?" Milton Trager

Perception training

In this course we deepen the ability to respond to the needs of the client. Whether it is in the non-judgmental observation of their movements during Mentastics or during table work. We refine the feeling for the basic skills and the quantity of stimulation that each person needs individually. The holistic nature of the human being encompasses diverse, even contradictory experiences (feelings, thoughts, attitudes, etc.). This complexly structured holistic form of human experience cannot be understood and influenced by analysis and rational procedures alone. Awareness of this complexity is a basis for shaping the therapeutic relationship and Trager's therapeutic intent.

Learning contents

  • Observation of movement patterns in clients and training of the corresponding suggestions.
  • Targeted application of Mentastics
