Course Description:

Three course objectives:

  • Understanding of the importance and relevance of non-verbal / relational communication skills in terms of a biopsychosocial approach in physiotherapy (theory and concepts)
  • Practical understanding and experience of own personal boundaries and mirroring style and preferences
  • Practical understanding and experience of adapting communication style to others whilst maintaining connected to yourself (attuning to client)

This course is a compliment to the PABC- Hosted Motivational Interviewing for Health Practitioners Course being held on Saturday September 28, 2019 at Lifemark West Kelowna. These two courses are meant to be taken together and will focus on building skills learned from the other course. They are not the same course. Different skills will be learned in each course. Please register separately for each course. Please note there are only 18 spots open for the September 29, 2019 course and 30 spots open for the September 28, 2019 course so please sign up early.…
