BIO CPD Day Sunday 12th November 2017 Managing the crisis of healing

Sunday, 12 Nov 2017 All day

  • An online payment is required to book.

'Healing crisis' normal event or 'adverse reaction?'

Managing the reactions to osteopathic treatment as a natural consequence with Howard Beardmore DO, Stephen Gamble and Jayne Donegan.

Celebrated Wild food chef Leon Lewis will provide hot buffet lunch. All refreshments provided by BIO.

This will be a real case history based event and will focus on the myriad of ways that your patient might unpack on their road to their recovery. There are no 'adverse reactions' to a Natural Hygiene approach because we are not attempting to suppress the healing reactions with medication. Mentoring a case is about using the resources of the patient wisely and this narrative can be learned.

None of these skills are now taught at any RQ osteopathic college due to the slide towards 'osteolite'. If we are to empower the profession to tool up and get back to real clinical practice, we need to know how to steer the patient back to health. Whatever your practice perspective, the healing crisis follows the same narrative, even if you are a patient, this course is an essential tool in your kit of survival in the modern world.

If you are fed up with osteopathic courses being about isolated technique, 'dosage', prescription and mobilisation, relax - this event will 'save your life and your practice'

The course is open to all, it is also the BIO members CPD day so you will be able to meet BIO members and see what a thriving community this group has become!

Not based on the medical modern fallacy of 'treatment means suppression'.
