This course is a necessary training for any clinician doing water based therapy with clients. While we will be utilizing kayaks to explore various water interventions, we will also discuss interventions and modalities such as water rituals, swimming, snorkeling, water play, and beach therapy.
We will start the day in the classroom setting and will progress to water where we will be kayaking. Part of this training includes American Canoe Association Level 1 Kayaking skills certification, a NECESSARY competency for anyone taking clients out in a kayaks. You will receive this certification by the end of this training (pending successful demonstration of kayaking skills). You do not need any kayaking experience to take this course.
