This workshop expands upon the special issues that surround the applications of CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release® as they pertain to newborns, infants and children.
This course will deepen and explore the knowledge and experience of CSP1 as well as adding several brand new techniques for use with babies and children. These techniques have only recently been developed and are very effective with little ones.
Family dynamics are explored in more depth, looking specifically at the energy dynamics between family members.
Development in utero is explored prior to you having an invaluable opportunity to address any developmental issues of your own through the completion of developmental process sessions.
The anatomy of the cranial nerves, so fundamental to our work with children with learning and sensory issues, is explored in both a didactic and experiential way to make it come alive in your hands.
As with CSP1 there will be plenty of opportunity to work in supervised sessions with babies, children and families.
What you will learn from coming on this course:
- Explore in more depth and detail the topics introduced in the first level CSP class
- Learn how treating the entire family and its dynamics powerfully impacts the healing process and health of the child
- Practice working with infants and children in a supervised environment
- Understand and apply important knowledge of specific brain anatomy/physiology to fine-tune the CST treatments
- Apply an understanding of the gestational process to facilitate cellular change within the infant/child who has experienced difficulty in their embryological, foetal development
- Gain more insight into the aetiology of some childhood ailments and disorders
- Increase creative dialoguing and imagery skills in the application of SER to paediatrics by focusing on ‘cell talk’
- Learn the application of five new treatment techniques for infants and children
Pre-requisite to this course is CSP1 and plenty of paediatric practice.
