The Creative Workplace are seeking expressions of interest for their ‘Creative Ageing’ program taking place in June 2022. This accredited training can be undertaken by any organisation, group or individual up-skilling for the care, health and/or arts sector.
This program enhances techniques that health practitioners currently employ when implementing creative movement activities in care or rehabilitation.
The program demonstrates ways that movement can:
- increases coordination, strength, and flexibility while releasing body tension and improve balance and,
- creates a familiar environment in which the participants enjoy movement and music in a safe, supportive environment.
The training is ideal for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation specialists, aged care nurses and anyone who is involved in using movement in a wellbeing capacity.
It is customised for health practitioners who may have limited or no background in creative movement, with a focus on:
- dance styles
- the relationship between dance and music
- the use of rhythm in dance exercises, and
- the creative process.
Participants will gain or refresh skills in:
- incorporating movement in care, rehabilitation and well-being programs, and
- engaging confidently in experiences that resonate with their clients.
On completion of the program, participants receive a Statement of Attainment in: Incorporating Movement in a Care and Health Setting
The accredited units attached to the program:
CUADAN314 Develop dance improvisation skills
CUADAN331 Integrate rhythm in dance and movement technique
BSBCRT402 Collaborate in a creative process
The program is normally offered over two days. If required, arrangements can be made to adapt the delivery to needs of an organisation.
This training program can be delivered fee free through TAFE funding and has unit components that will act as recognised prior learning for the upcoming Arts and Health Diploma delivered by TAFE NSW.
