COURSES EXPLORING PSYCHOLOGICAL PROCESS IN COMPLIMENTARY HEALTH CARE


 

  • Introduction to Counselling Skills for Manual and Physical Therapists
     
    What you say can be as important as what you do with your patients. Being able to listen to the patient and communicate in simple, focused ways is an essential part of clinical work, in particular when the patient is under stress. This one-day course will provide an introduction to counselling skills that can be applied in the manual/physical therapy clinical setting. The workshop will include:
    • An introduction to the relevance of counselling skills for manual and physical therapists
    • Exploring some aspects of the therapeutic relationship
    • Theoretical input and an opportunity to experiment with fundamental counselling skills including: reflecting, paraphrasing, empathic listening, focusing and tracking
    Course leaders: Tsafi Lederman & Jenny Stacey

  • How to Support Your Patients in the Process of Change
     
    How often do you find your patients haven't managed to make the changes necessary to sustain their recovery?

    The success of treatment often relies on the patient's participation in the overall management of their condition. However, compliance and adherence to all forms of self-care has been shown to be low in different musculoskeletal conditions. Some patients may need help in changing habitual patterns of behaviour that impede recovery. In this course participants will learn clinical skills to support their patients in embedding behavioural patterns that can support recovery. There will be an exploration of the process of change and how to provide the necessary environment for sustaining recovery. The participants will be introduced to some basic skills and models used in Coaching (Prochaska Change Model and GROW), as well as exploring the psychological dynamics that can get in the way of change.

  • The Therapeutic Relationship - Managing Difficult Situations
     
    Do you find that you have difficulties in the relationship with particular patients? Is the relationship getting in the way of the treatment? The relationship between the physical therapist and the patient plays a pivotal role in the process of recovery. In this workshop Tsafi and Jenny will discuss some of the relational dynamics in clinic such as professional boundaries, projections and how the patients and therapist experience each other throughout the treatment. There will also be an opportunity for the participants to bring case studies to discuss relational difficulties with specific patients.

  • Therapeutic Touch
     
    Research has shown that many painful musculoskeletal conditions are due to psychological factors, not mechanical. Is there a place for touch as a therapeutic tool in managing these conditions? This workshop will explore what makes touch therapeutic beyond its direct mechanical/physiological effects and how this awareness can be used to develop the quality of the therapeutic process. The participants will develop and fine-tune their touch skills to make it a more effective clinical tool. There will be an emphasis on a hands-on approach during the workshop to encourage the use of the learned material in clinic. The workshop will be led by Tsafi Lederman, with a contribution from Eyal Lederman who will cover the psychophysiological aspects of touch. Topics covered by the course will include: The workshop will include:
    • Touch as communication and intention
    • Touch as silent dialogue
    • Touch and emotion
    • The effect of touch on body image
    • The use of touch within the therapeutic relationship
    • Physiological effects of touch
    • The development of touch needs throughout the life cycle
    • How to develop therapeutic touch
    • Clinical application of therapeutic touch
