Movement as a precious tool for self-care: a salutogenesis perspective fostering personal development and growth

Webinar description

Movement is a precious tool for self-awareness and personal growth in therapeutic and pedagogical settings. A salutogenetic view of self-reflection to gain self awareness fosters the continuum of existence leading towards personal development and growth. This workshop will foster the role of self-reflection and how we look at this as a precious tool for the salutogenetic process.

In this experiential workshop we will briefly touch on a few basic salutogenetic theories that will inform us towards working with a salutogenetic attitude about our movement experience. We will learn to understand that self-reflection can be a tool for and within the salutogenetic process. We will highlight and experience self-reflection oriented interventions and experience their impact in practical application and inner attitude towards building a salutogenetic self-concept.
