This workshop will cover understanding what Movement means in Adlerian terms and how we can use the physical form to explore our own unique law of movement.
This reflective and interactive workshop is for those interested in exploring correlations between Adler’s psychological movement and physical movement. We will explore what it means to have useful and useless movement in both areas.
We will look at movement using the four lifestyle priorities and our own physical form which expresses those priorities.
Creativity, specifically using art expression is a key component to a well-balanced practice as a mental health professional.
