Using At-Home Activities to Improve In-Clinic IM Performance Self-Study

Course Description:

The purpose of an exercise is to make progress: generally, to increase strength, accuracy, or range of motion. On the other hand, the purpose of an activity is to explore options: generally, to increase ease, adaptability, and expertise. An important difference between the two is the following: With exercises, proper execution and perseverance are generally of paramount importance: it is important to ensure clients do them right and keep doing them. With activities, simplicity and ease are generally of paramount importance: it is important to remain gentle and encourage clients to use as little effort as possible. This course will explore three basic questions that are important to consider as part of any Interactive Metronome program to ensure success: 1) What are some common difficulties client’s encounter with IM activities? 2) What activities can be assigned for homework to help these clients through those difficulties?, and 3)How can you introduce these activities to your clients within the context of IM sessions?
