Expanding Your Toolbox: Integrating Therapeutic Approaches in Pediatrics

21 Sep - 23 Sep 2015 @ Mary Winspear Centre

Sidney, BC V8L 1W9

Instructors: Kim Barthel OTR, Shelley Mannell PT

There are many different frames of reference that blend together to form a holistic approach to pediatric intervention.  Combining and integrating theories assists in deepening the detective work necessary for problem solving and development of an optimal individualized treatment plan.  The goal of this course is to provide a 3-day integrated learning experience.  

Through video, client demonstrations and practical lab work each day, you will have the opportunity to problem solve assessment and learn treatment skills as they apply directly to clients. Come and participate in an experience where you are actively learning, in an environment where problem solving and reflection are encouraged and the goal is integration of skills essential for the management of children with a variety of challenges.
