Alexander Technique is one of the only modalities that is in the NICE guidelines for Parkinson’s Disease. This training is designed to better equip you to meet the specific needs of people living with Parkinson’s. You'll come away with some practical strategies and increased confidence, and will be more aware of the particular considerations that need to be taken into account, including awareness around health and safety aspects.
The workshops will give you a general understanding of Parkinson’s symptoms, current treatments and how they assist, including some of the medications used and their possible side effects. You will hear about the day-to-day challenges of living with Parkinson’s and learn about the ways in which the Alexander Technique can be best adapted to meet them, from teachers who have experience teaching pupils with the condition. We will make reference to research that has been conducted into the effectiveness of Alexander Technique for people with Parkinson’s. In the afternoon sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet and listen to people affected by Parkinson’s, and gain some first-hand, practical, supervised experience in working with them in a workshop setting.
The training will give you the knowledge required to structure your lessons according to the needs of your pupils affected by Parkinson's, to help keep them safe and to address their particular needs more effectively. The knowledge, understanding and skills learnt in the workshops could help in building a good rapport with these pupils. The insights you gain will help you to help them manage their condition better and get more out of life by learning strategies to address the challenges they face in doing the activities that matter most to them.

PROGRAMME:
DAY ONE: Friday 8th February
Morning session 9:30am – 12:30pm A short introduction to the programme and what has happened so far. The teachers who have pioneered this initiative with the support of the Trust will share from their experience of working with people living with Parkinson’s, and we will have input from some of the first group of teachers who trained with us in 2018. The morning session includes an overview of Parkinson’s Disease symptoms, current treatments (and how they assist), the main medications used and their possible side effects. You will hear about the day-to-day challenges of living with Parkinson’s and explore ways in which the Alexander Technique can be taught, with consideration of feedback from teachers who have experience teaching pupils with the condition. We will make reference to research that has been conducted into the effectiveness of Alexander Technique for people with Parkinson’s.

Afternoon Session Group Workshop 1:30pm – 5:00pm Approximately 12 people living with Parkinson’s and their carers will be invited to come to a workshop entitled “Living with Parkinson’s – Exploring Possibilities with the Alexander Technique”. This workshop will be led by Liz Dodgson and Loretta Manson, two of the teachers who pioneered this initiative. The teachers in the Trust programme will be invited to watch and assist at their own pace, thus having the opportunity to gain one-to-one hands-on experience in working with people with Parkinson’s.

DAY TWO: Friday 5th February

Morning session 9:30am – 12:30pm
Discussion of day one.
A Parkinson’s specialist will give an introduction to their work - speaker and content to be confirmed nearer the time.

Tues 12/02/2019:  Let the games begin!
  
A one-day workshop on AT and Sport for AT teachers
What we teach our pupils every day is just what active and sporty people need.

• Would you like to spend time with your colleagues looking at how the skills you already possess can be applied to the sporting world?
• Would you like to think through how to get some of the fundamentals of AT across to athletes and active people?

Then this is your opportunity to do so. Incorporating a mix of activities and lots of practical hands-on time, the workshop will look at how you can work with a range of sports and let the world know how exactly you can help them. It will also highlight how you can use the new 'Sports and AT' film to promote your work.

The workshop is eligible for STAT CPD and will be run in a format which we hope will be repeatable, easily, by others. Any teacher who is willing to commit to repeating the workshop in another geographical area can ask STAT to waive their course fee and will be guided through
the format and resources.
br> Time: 10.30am-3.45pm
However, we have the room available for longer if people want to stay on and work/chat or explore a little more with colleagues.

Target audience: AT teachers (STAT or non STAT) and 8/9 term students. Cost: £30 for teachers and £25 for students (£10 more for non-STAT). Tutors: Dai Richards, Liz Dodgson and Andy Smith
For any non-booking related queries, please contact Liz Dodgson on 020 8994 9527 or Elizabeth@ATteacher.co.uk < br> To Book , contact STAT office to request a booking form.
