Come and learn Rhythmic Movement Training Level 1 & 2

Level 1 18&19 October 2019 £275

Level 2 20 October 2019 £160

Level 1 - 14 CPD Points

In this 2-day course participants learn the basics of the Rhythmic Movement Training: how rhythmic movements can be used to assist in regulating muscle tone; stimulating the connections between the cerebellum and the neocortex, especially the frontal lobes in order to improve attention and control impulses. The course also includes examining the role of the primitive reflexes in development, and how to integrate them using rhythmic movements and isometric pressure.

Ideal for OTs, OTAs, PTs, PTAs, SLPs, parents, social workers, family and mental health therapists, developmental optometrists and VTs, yoga therapists, classroom teachers; special education teachers; nursury and preschool teachers, health care providers; massage therapists, trauma specialists and caregivers; kinesiologists, Brain Gym instructors.

Topics Include:

  • Demonstrate and practice of rhythmic movements and how these movements promote brain development, effective learning, speech development, emotional balance, stress release, stamina and postural strength.
  • Discussion, demonstration and practice of reflexes related to developing postural control.
  • Discussions and practice of how reflexes and their importance to understanding the foundations of sensory-motor, emotional and cognitive function.
  • Experience, notice and express ‘before and after’ changes that occur from doing 17 Rhythmic Movements

Upon course completion students will be able to:

  • Identify the innate rhythmic movements of infancy and recall why these movements promote brain development, effective learning, speech development, emotional balance, stress release, stamina and postural strength.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of 17 Rhythmic Movements.
  • Indicate if primitive reflexes are un-integrated and discuss the importance of integration to foundations of sensory-motor, emotional and cognitive function.
  • Describe the research showing the connection between un-integrated reflexes and functional challenges.
  • Assess 6 key primitive and postural reflexes for clients: Tonic Labyrinthine, Spinal Galant, Landau, Babinski, Symmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex, and Amphibian Reflex.
  • Experience, notice and express ‘before and after’ changes that occur from doing 17 Rhythmic Movements
  • Demonstrate the movement patterns and protocols for integrating 6 key primitive and postural reflexes: Tonic Labyrinthine, Spinal Galant, Landau, Babinski, Symmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex, Amphibian Reflex.

Topics

  • The role infant movement and reflexes play in brain growth, learning, emotional development and behavior, and the research showing the crucial importance of integrating infant reflexes for foundational sensory processing and learning skills.

  • Reasons why un-integrated reflexes are a major factor in challenges such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, developmental delay, sensory processing disorder, autism, chronic stress/overwhelm and other learning, emotional and behavioral difficulties.

  • How Rhythmic Movement Training creates neural links between the brainstem, cerebellum, limbic area and prefrontal cortex and how this helps with stress release, speech development, social-emotional skills, physical skills, learning and behavioral challenges.

Assessments

Students taking the RMTi courses for professional credit or continuing education must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Attend the entire duration of the training
  2. Complete a written test of at least 75% correct answers demonstrating an understanding of the important concepts taught in the class.
  3. Actively participate in experiential learning and practicing of the movements.
  4. Show competency in lab work.
  5. Submit a completed training evaluation form.

Students are expected to read the course manual and to actively participate in class discussions.


Level 2 - 7 CPD Points

This 1-day course addresses how the Rhythmic Movement Training affects our emotions, how to work with movements to get in touch with our emotions and to stabilise them when they threaten to take control. It also examines how stress and daily life affects our body and how the rhythmic movements can help to relax and ease muscle tension. It is a necessary supplement for anyone who wishes to work with rhythmic movement training.

Topics Include:

  • The role infant movement and reflexes play in brain growth, learning, emotional development and behaviour, and the research showing the crucial importance of integrating infant reflexes for foundational sensory processing and learning skills.
  • Why unintegrated reflexes are a major factor in challenges such as ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, developmental delay, sensory processing disorder, autism, chronic stress/overwhelm and other learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
  • The critical importance of integrating the Fear Paralysis and Moro reflexes for sensory processing, emotional regulation and social development.
  • How to use Rhythmic Movements with people of all ages
  • Identify how an individual’s behaviour indicates an underdeveloped limbic system
  • Identify protocols to release tension patterns from areas affected by the Tendon Guard Reflex—legs, hip, back, neck and shoulders.

Includes full colour illustrated manual:

RMTi Level 2 - RMT for Emotions, Memory and Behavior, by Moira Dempsey, USA Edition, Copyright, 2012.

Upon course completion students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate 17 Rhythmic Movements plus additional movements for limbic system integration and coordination of upper and lower body.
  • Recognize why and how to use 17 Rhythmic Movements for all ages, infant to adult.
  • Assess one key intrauterine reflex - Fear Paralysis Reflex, and the key primitive Moro Reflex and one protective reflex, Tendon Guard reflex.
  • Identify whether an individual’s behavior indicates an underdeveloped limbic system imbalance
  • Demonstrate the movement patterns and protocols for integrating two key reflexes - Fear Paralysis Reflex and Moro Reflex and one protective reflex, Tendon Guard reflex.
  • Identify protocols to release tension patterns from areas affected by the Tendon Guard Reflex—legs, hip, back, neck and shoulders.
