International Snoezelen Association ISNA - Snoezelen professional e.V.


Dear members and friends of ISNA-Snoezelen professional,

today we are pleased to inform you, that the Regional Office for Health and Social Affairs Berlin (LAGeSo) has granted our application for recognition as educational measure

- Introduction courses and informative events as well as
- Basic courses and specialised courses to obtain the “International additional qualification Snoezelen”.

That applies retrospectively to the 01.01.2015. The non-profit status of our association has also been confirmed.

Our teaching team is made up of experts from the respective specialist fields. Ongoing professional development is vital, and all out experts partake in training courses and exchanges of knowledge amongst colleagues in science and practice. We see our main tasks in promoting the target group adapted curriculum and the particularly high, science-based professional qualification. That is done through our homepage, articles in professional journals as well as attending conferences and symposiums. Suitable text books for the training courses are used and are available in German, English, Japanese and Korean. (cf. i.a. Mertens, K.: “Snoezelen - in Action”. Shaker Verlag, Aachen 20184).

We aim to maintain the high standard of our training courses. You can find a list of courses on the homepage under the heading “training”.

We are always happy to help. Please contact us with your enquiries. Would you like to offer an in-house training course at your facility? Do you need help with setting up a Snoezelen room? Our experienced teaching team is put together with professionals from different backgrounds and are happy to answer any questions you might have. In future we will also offer annual trips to particular Snoezelen facilities at home or abroad – like the trip to the Netherlands this year. Our members are from 15 different countries and would like to present their facilities to you.

Our teaching team, including myself would like to wish you all the best.
