What Participants Have To Say!
“This course was exceptional! The structure, content, integration, and resources were great. This definitely has impacted my practice for the better. I will be recommending this course to other colleagues. Thank you Lara!”
Torri Luchyshyn, Physiotherapist
“I really appreciate how tangible this course is. While being a “psych” course, I really felt I had small nuggets of gold (word choice, recognition of thought processes) that I could immediately take away and put into practice in my professional and personal life. A lot of it spoke to my soul!”
Caitlyn Goodfellow, Ortho and Pelvic PT
“CBT for Persistent Physical Symptoms is a diverse topic that can be used with a variety of client populations. Lara does an excellent job making the information accessible, from the theoretical underpinnings to practical tools to use in your every-day practice setting. The course comes with both electronic and hardcopy resources, which meant I was able to immediately put my new skills to use with clients. It was a fantastic course!”
Maryann Ashley, BASc, MSc. OT
“As physiotherapists, we spend the early part of our career learning technical hands-on skills. Once those are mastered, there comes a time when you feel the need to explore the fascinating psychology of pain and disability This course is a great starting point in the pursuit of CBT skill-attainment.”
Jeffrey Begg, PT, FCAMPT
