About this Event

People who find it hard to move are at risk of developing destructive changes in their body shape. These changes can make life much more difficult for the person and for those caring for them. They are also preventable.

Bas Jansen and Denise Luscombe provide training in protection of body shape using therapeutic positioning, particularly at night. This form of therapy is very gentle and based on common sense principles pioneered by the Goldsmiths in the UK.

Night positioning involves using the many hours spent in bed, usually about a third of the year, to gently support people to prevent stress on joints or even to restore existing problems with body shape. The earlier you start to protect body shape the better – but it’s never too late.

Their courses will provide you with practical skills that you can adapt, develop and apply to suit your needs.

This accredited course has been developed with a view to improving the health and lifestyle of individuals affected by movement difficulties. Any child with a movement problem, regardless of their diagnosis, could benefit from postural care. Come along to what will be an informative, supportive, valuable and exciting day.

Topics include:

• Understanding 24 hour positioning

• Understanding postures

• Identification of need

• Pain and consent

• Achieving thermal comfort and sleep

• Postural Care: a person-centred approach
