This workshop is designed as a postgraduate programme aimed at MSc level education and above and is ideally suited to attendees with a first degree in a principal medical discipline or allied health care therapy with at least three years of undergraduate training. Aspects of the workshop will naturally be familiar and some areas may be seen as a refresher by some attendees. The focus is not solely on the intake of new information but rather on the cohesive use of the information so that the practitioner and patient are able to share the journey.

This Workshop is taught in English, and there are no onsite translation facilities available. Please attend only if you are competent at understanding a high level of the English Language.
How do I obtain support after the training?
