Stark & Watson, is happy to welcome you to the 2-day Workshop: “The GET PERMISSION Approach to Pediatric Feeding” that will take place between 10th-11th March 2018 in Athens, Greece.
“GET PERMISSION” is an approach to mealtimes and feeding treatment based on the foundation of trust in a feeding relationship. It supports children who have mealtime challenges in moving forward with mealtime goals of sensory enjoyment, motor skill and confidence and internal motivation. It follows the child’s lead with creative and sensitive mealtime treatment intervention strategies.
We support families whose children have medical, sensory and experiential challenges. We will discuss anxious and worried eaters in depth.
This practical course will discuss and demonstrate critical reasoning behind the GET PERMISSION Approach© to pediatric feeding therapy. Principles and language of the GET PERMISSION Approach© will be presented, viewed through case studies, video examples, and practice.
The factors influencing the complex nature of feeding and permission will be highlighted. Strategies supporting the feeding relationship and child and parent success will be explored.
Workshop’s official language is English.
After completion of the Workshop, participants will be able to:
