If your patient has a pelvis, you will benefit from this course! You don’t have to be a practicing internal pelvic health therapist in order to profit from this online course which was recorded at the 6th Pelvic Health Solutions Symposium. Learn the science, critical reasoning and inter-disciplinary approaches needed to fully understand the direction that pelvic health is taking in your community, provincially, nationally and internationally.

Course Description:  

Lara Desrosiers will provide a summary of the upcoming Pelvic Health Solution’s course, CBT skills for distressing physical symptoms. Participants will learn about the evidence to support the use of CBT for chronic pelvic pain and other distressing symptoms related to pelvic health. We will discuss how thoughts and beliefs about symptoms can support OR stall recovery and how our language as health providers can serve to re-enforce maladaptive beliefs OR promote hope and healing.

The instructors
Pelvic Health Solutions

Pelvic Health Solutions is an evidence-based teaching company that was founded in 2010 by Nelly Faghani and Carolyn Vandyken, out of the need to develop pelvic health resources in Ontario, an under serviced health concern in this province. Since the inception of our teaching company, pelvic health physiotherapy has blossomed from a handful of physiotherapists to well over 300 therapists now rostered with the Ontario College of Physiotherapists. Pelvic Health Solutions provides continuing education courses for a variety of practitioners, including mentoring and clinical resources for therapists to utilize with their patients. Our mission is to provide evidence-based, biopsychosocial resources to patients and health care practitioners for the assessment and treatment of pelvic health problems in our province and abroad.
