Course Description

Freeing Potential

A unique approach to mental, physical and behavioral life and learning issues.

What is getting in the way of our children being healthy and happy?

What is keeping many of us from reaching our fullest potential?

One in seven children in America have recognizable differences in their behavioral, mental or physical development. Many feel overwhelmed, impacting sleep, focus and productivity.

What is causing this so-called “epidemic”? How can we make changes to counter this? This 12-hour course teaches the Foundations and Applications of HANDLE through the lens of an array of life and learning challenges, effecting young children to elderly. Follow founder Judith Bluestone’s process to develop theories on Attention and Autism and begin to see behaviors as communication with new “HANDLE eyes”. Discover the interconnected relationship of nutrition, neurophysiology, healthy movement and more. Students will learn unique HANDLE activities and will explore how the activities can be applied and adapted to support individuals with a wide range of ages, sensitivities, and challenges.

HANDLE is a unique, gentle, non-drug movement therapy that is beneficial for individuals of all ages and abilities.

Level 1 offers an over-view of the HANDLE paradigm, and Gentle Enhancement® including instruction in some unique HANDLE activities.

Level 2 builds upon the Level 1 with an in-depth look at sensory processing systems. Students learn more activities and different applications for a variety of presenting concerns.
