General information about training courses of ISNA
Two-day Introduction event "Free Snoezelen"
Even for "Free Snoezelen", which is aimed at recuperation, rest and relaxation, lighting and preparation of positioning need to be considered. Music, pictures and often scents need to be adapted to each individual client. The companion has to have the intuition to recognise if a client desires closeness or not and needs to pay attention to the clients' well-being. In consideration of participants' needs/field of work the courses will deliver and illustrate a wide range of examples for different age groups and developmental stages.
Of course, general targets and contents of Snoezelen as support and therapy method are being addressed. The two day introduction event can be recognised as a practical module in context of the International recognised additional qualification.
Each of the courses needed to acquire the„ International recognised additional qualification Snoezelen" lasts 2 to 3 days and can be spread over a year:
Basicmodule I: An introduction course (3 days)
Basicmodule II: Didactic and methodical principles (3 days)
Practical Modules: III, IV and V (2 days each)
