As IHA Halliwick Senior Lecturer I am mentor for the Halliwick trainee lecturer, Fabiola Silva in Brazil.
It is a bit of a challange. First of all we are using english as the communication between portuguese to danish. How to support the trainee Lecturer to achieve the theoretical and practical understanding of Halliwick Concept. Special for for me how the attributes of the aquatic environment, specifically the physical properties of water, can assist the individual in promoting his abilities in physical, emotional and social functioning.
