“The JKA Training bridges the gap between the Feldenkrais Teacher Training and the reality of working with children. The breadth and depth of the course is incomparable with other trainings I’ve taken, and would recommend it to anyone planning to work with children and adults. Jeremy’s teaching and work with children is always inspirational.”
The Jeremy Krauss Approach (JKA) Professional Training Program has expanded its amount of days, hours and its curriculum. This is to enable the Professional Training Program to develop and increase the repertoire of professional skills that are taught for professional use.
Along with the world renowned studies of the JKA for children, the Training Program has added into the curriculum skills and techniques for working with typical adults and children in both group work and private work using developmental and functional ideas.
The group work will be JKA-Abilities through Movement (JKA-ATM) and the private work JKA-Developmental and Functional Hands–On work (JKA- DHO and JKA-FHO) Both techniques being added are unique and are derivatives of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais’s work with developmental application that comes from Jeremy Krauss’s long years of teaching and experience of infant child development with its application to special needs children. This will now be applied to the work in groups and private individual sessions.
These additions will allow more professional skills and work with larger variety of populations, increase the base of knowledge, information, and also give more time and experience in clinical supervision as well expanding the student base of the Training Program.
