Marte Meo Practitioner Training

We have now completed two cohorts of the six-day Practitioner Marte Meo Training with our Licensed Marte Meo Supervisor Joy Elford. Participants are buzzing and excited to spread the word about this fantastic training opportunity.

Coming in July 2019, a 3 hour introductory session being held in Launceston and Hobart. These sessions provide a great opportunity for participants to explore the Marte Meo approach and why it is becoming such a popular and successful interaction based practice when working with children, educators, adults and families. https://www.gowrieconsultancy.com.au/events-calendar/

Marte Meo International is a film-based interaction analysis program now implemented in 43 countries. Founded by Maria Aarts, Netherlands, Marte Meo derives from Latin, meaning “one’s own strength”.

This is a method that has been implemented in a variety of professions including teaching, health services, psychology, social services, nursing, and disability services. It is applicable to anyone who has a role which involves understanding children’s development and recognising the social and emotional elements of the developmental process to support children’s development in concrete and practical ways.

The six-day training in Marte Meo Practitioner Level involves teaching in the following areas:

  • Introduction to Marte Meo
  • Exploring the Marte Meo adult supportive communication techniques of: Following skills, Leading skills (detailed guidance and confirmation) and Cooperation skills.
  • Making emotional connections
  • Activating development rather than compensating problems and reading the developmental message behind behaviour
  • Recognising how to use supportive communication in daily interactions in the right moment
  • School readiness skills
  • How to lift up social information to support social and emotional connection
  • How to go into the world of the child and match the tempo of the child
  • How to use the lists associated with many of the Marte Meo elements

Participants will:

  • Watch and analyse video clips from the training resource that highlight supportive communication.
  • Review and analyse own video clips taken in a guided and supportive step by step supervisor process.
  • Fine tune and increase observation skills and articulation of practice.
  • Implement practical skills back in the workplace including ongoing mentoring support between training days.
