This symposium addresses an urgent need for specific, up-to-date, science-based models to help AT practitioners to
- better understand what we are learning and teaching physiologically.
- better communicate with scientists, medical professionals, and AT colleagues.
- broaden the base of respect and understanding for our profession.
The symposium features four speakers:
- Dr. Patrick Johnson (PhD Physics, STAT/NeVLAT certified teacher of AT)
- Dr. Tim Cacciatore (PhD Neuroscience, STAT certified teacher of AT)
- Assoc. Prof. Rajal Cohen (PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology University of Idaho, AmSAT certified teacher of AT)
- Prof. Ian Loram (PhD, Professor of Neuromuscular Control of Human Movement, Manchester Metropolitan University, PAAT certified teacher of AT)
Dr. Cacciatore, Dr. Cohen, and Prof. Loram have all published research relevant to the science and practice of Alexander Technique in top scientific journals. They are also passionate AT practitioners and teachers. This combination makes them uniquely qualified to guide the AT community on this challenging topic. Dr. Patrick Johnson, AT teacher and physicist, will add context by outlining issues confronting the AT world with regard to science. All four have offered workshops about AT science for teachers and students.
