level 1 introductory training

Training in the Moving Pieces approach over two weekends in 2020 - dates TBC.

Moving Pieces are excited to announce training sessions over two weekends in 2020 in the Moving Pieces approach. Ideal for professionals with a background in arts and mental health, we ask that attendees have previously attended the 8-week course and a weekend course, as we will be building upon the skills highlighted in these sessions.

The training will be an opportunity to learn about some of the core components of the Moving Pieces approach, how they are sequenced and potential applications. 

This introductory programme will include learning a range of body based skills to support regulation of the nervous system, creative and embodied ways of building empathy in a group and how to work safely with implicit memories held in the body.
