Body Workers (Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, Kinesiologists, Massage Therapists, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, etc.)
In these workshops the focus is on client presentations and the manner in which a client relates his/her physical concerns and pain experience to the practitioner. A brief review of pain experience is undertaken. New and current research information on the personality differences in pain presentation and treatment goals are reviewed. Focus is placed on the practice of recognizing presentations and working with them. Consistent emphasis is placed on attendance to ‘resistance’ to treatment and how to approach treatment with different personality types. The relationship between body, mind and emotions is the groundwork on which these workshops rest. Workshops vary in length from one to four days.
