Clinical Practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP, implementation science, program development)
Neuroplasticity (includes neuroscience)
Moving beyond lip-service into effective delivery of whole-person care can be a challenge. In this workshop, we will explore the application of practical tools for evidence-based mind-body integration in rehabilitation. The chronic pain and opioid epidemics underscore a need for improved capacity to engage an integrative model of care, however this makes good sense as a standard for all care. The historical splitting of mind, body, and environment (both physical and social) continues to negatively impact the delivery of care. The inter-related fields of psychoneuroimmunology and mind-body medicine demonstrate the role of toxic stress on processes of autonomic dysregulation, central sensitization, and other biological underpinnings of pain and many other chronic health challenges. Person-centered mind-body care can help! Join us - biopsychosocial practice starts now!
