Alumni Workshares

Once a term alumni and training course teachers get together at LCATT to share work.  This offers the opportunity for graduates to work with the LCATT community of teachers and to present ideas and work to the group.

Workshares for All Teachers

Next work exchange – Sunday 18th March 11.00am-1.00pm  – Free.
All teachers are welcome to the workshares at LCATT. You can just drop in or contact Roger – kidd.roger@gmail.com for more details.

Workshops and Talks

LCATT organises regular activities including talks from other disciplines that may relate to the Alexander Technique, forums with presentations about inspiring work being done within the Alexander Technique and workshops for visiting teachers from abroad. (See below for further information).

‘INTERESTING TALKS’

LCATT has begun to host a series of interesting talks linking with other disciplines. They have been really successful so far, so do come and join us for the next one.


We have had wonderful talks by Leon Baugh on the Anatomy in Motion system, one on “How the Mind changes the Body” by voice and acting coach Colin Farquharson on working with dyslexia, one on the relationship between cranio-sacral therapy and Alexander Technique with Liz Kalinowska and Daska Hatton and, lastly, a fantastic talk by Emma Alter giving us an introduction to Feldenkrais with information on his life and a taste of his work. See reviews of all of them in past STAT News.

The fifth Interesting Talk at LCATT will be ‘Listening and Responding’ with Maggie Sawkins. 15th March 2018. Teachers’ workshare from 7-7.30pm and talk 7.30-9.00pm.  £10 teachers £5 students.  If you would like to attend please let Judithkleinman@gmail.com know, or feel free to turn up on the night. 

Maggie Sawkins has mediated in many difficult conflicts and has trained mediators to prevent, respond to, and better understand, disputes in the workplace. She is passionate about using active listening skills, especially at work, which help people to be heard, to prevent misunderstandings, and to build meaningful connections. She has run workshops for Macmillan Cancer Support and for Google.
Her session for us will include insights into the benefits (and challenges) of learning to be an active listener as well as demonstrations and practise.

A Macmillan volunteer has said “Reality check of how we listen in actuality, not how we think we do. Everyone who interacts with people should do this!”

FORUM DAYS
Get inspiration at a Forum day at LCATT. Next one will happen in the summer term.
