Northwest District presents Slowdown for Better Outcomes
Join us for a short business meeting followed by a one contact hour continuing education opportunity!
Location: Tuning Tree - 515 S. Barstow St. Ste 117, Eau Claire
Research is showing that the biopshychosocial (BPS) model and the quality of the therapist - patient relationship have a significant impact on treatment efficacy. But how do we actually go about implementing this model into our day-to -day practice so that we can have better engagement with the treatment plan, improved patient empowerment and outcomes? How do we develop rapport with our patients so that we can discover and address potential barriers to progress and facilitate the healing process? Some of the practical methods to achieve this include breathwork, somatics, visualization, and embodied listening. We’re going to learn in one hour how to start practicing and implementing this approach without a lot of jargon and complexity so that you can have an internal compass to guide you in implementing the dynamics of the BPS model into your practice right away.
Katie McMorran, PT, MPT
Katie McMorran graduated from UW-Madison with a Masters degree in Physical Therapy in 2006. While on her last internship, a recurring back injury led her into the non-impact practice of yoga. There, she found a new challenge in flexibility, core strengthening, and journey into self-inquiry. She went on to learn a number of healing arts in Arizona including craniosacral therapy, myofascial release and reiki and implements these along with the principles of yoga into her treatments for more effective outcomes. She has been a John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Expert Therapist and Reiki Master for over 10 years and runs a holistic healing Massage and PT practice called Tuning Tree, located in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
