Forced Use Therapy according to Utley/Woll – Basic Course

  • 3000 CHF / Euro


Participants acquire knowledge of forced use and constraint-induced movement therapy, taking into account the latest research findings.

They also enrich their work with clients through the theory and practical implementation of findings from neuroplasticity, motor learning and the recovery of motor control after brain damage.


The course focuses on the clinical application of forced use paradigms for clients with neurological dysfunctions.

Learning objectives include movement analysis, assessment, implementation of forced use strategies including mobilisation and facilitation techniques and the development of a treatment plan. Participants learn how functional activities and repetitive training for the upper and lower extremities, taking into account the forced use paradigms, enable the restoration of motor functions of the affected extremities.


Participants treat clients for at least 2 hours a day from the 2nd week onwards.

Project work is carried out between the modules to facilitate the repetition and consolidation of what has been learnt.

A recognised IFUSA certificate will be issued on completion of the course once all projects have been completed.
