Body Image: the basis of who we are and how we act.
Workshop – Sunday 18 June 10.00am-4:30pm, held at ADT Studios 126 Belair Road, Hawthorn.
Join Associate Professor Susan Hillier of the University of South Australia for a special workshop for anyone interested in body image – clinicians, dancers, actors, yoga teachers, students, or individuals.
We create an internal sense of self in relation to our body schema and body image that is multifaceted and dynamic. In this workshop we will explore ways of understanding and influencing this complex neuro-matrix. We will explore how our body image links inextricably with our sense of ownership and agency – how we self en-act in the world. Learning will be through brief theoretical discussions, exploration and self-contemplation. Participants will gain knowledge of the neuroscience behind the processes of body image to help explain these phenomena with themselves, their clients (where these processes can become disrupted or distorted), or with students. Participants will also experience ways we can explicitly sculpt these processes using principles of neuroplasticity and multimodal sensory feedback.
