A one day course aimed at helping you to integrate cranial work into your existing osteopathic practice, and to give you the confidence to communicate effectively with your patients.
Maybe you've been on a course and then returned to your practice and wondered how to use your new skills? Perhaps you've been asked to explain the different approach you're using by a patient or questioned how to write up the treatment you've given in the case notes?
If you're answering yes to any of the above this one-day course could be just what you're looking for. Integrating and Communicating is designed for Osteopaths just like you.
Over the course of the day, in a relaxed, collegiate atmosphere we aim to help address the questions above and others that you might like to bring.
This day will help you to develop the language skills and approach to clinical cases that will directly help you to write your assignments.Practical work will be included.
