HOLISTIC CIRCUS THERAPY TRAINING w/ Jill Maglio
May 27th – 28th, 2023
Join this teacher training to gain a greater depth of knowledge in the practice of circus-based occupational therapy. This workshop is geared towards anyone who has completed at least high school level of education.
The Holistic Circus Therapy Training explores how existing evidence-based occupational therapy interventions used to improve motor control, sensory processing, executive function, and social and emotional health can be paired with social circus philosophy to provide effective services within the pediatric, mental health, special needs, aged care, community health, and social political sectors. The practice of circus-themed occupational therapy requires task analysis of activities, clinical reasoning, evidence-based approaches, and evaluation tools to facilitate greater application for diverse service users. Practitioners of circus-based occupational therapy will be able to provide interventions and demonstrate effective psychosocial change for individuals and their communities.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion.
Students should have completed at least a high school level of education.
