Learning to be RGM practitioners

RGM Introduction Course

About the Introduction Course

The Introduction course is the first of two steps on the path to becoming a certified RGM practitioner.

The course is recommended for those working with individuals or groups with neurological disorders or who seek to complement and enrich existing treatment methods within their field of practice. The Introduction Course is recommended for those working in health care (hospitals, aged care, day care, rehabilitation centres, private practices), healthy ageing and education (teacher aids, SEN teachers) and those working with seniors in the community.

During the two-day introduction course we will cover the 7 basic double symbols/movements, the theory behind RGM, brain plasticity in relation to RGM as well as the power of rhythm and some practical music analysis for RGM-use.

 

Eligibility for the Introduction Course

The courses are open to Music Therapists, Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapists, Diversional and Recreational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Teachers, Community Support Workers, Mental Health Workers, Neuropsychologists, Rehabilitation Doctors.

It is expected that participants have an affinity with music (you do not need to play an instrument) and a sense of rhythm. In addition, participants must have the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice. If you are not sure whether you meet these requirements, please contact us so that we can assess together to what extent it meets your needs and what is possible.
