The 3 day workshop is dynamic, interactive and practical and will further develop the delegates’ skills in diagnostics, clinical reasoning and designing CFT interventions for specific spinal disorders. Live or videotaped patients will be used to demonstrate how to apply the principles of CFT into practice. Patients in this workshop will have persistent spinal pain of a complex and debilitating nature. Where available the delegates will be provided during the clinical workshops with directions to supporting publications and web-based resources (www.pain-ed.com) to assist this process.
Following aspects will further be addressed:
• The utilisation of motivational interviewing techniques to allow for the development of a strong therapeutic alliance within a biopsychosocial framework while identifying and targeting barriers for behavioural change.
• Diagnostic, observational and interpretive skills required to triage patients, analyse functional and pain behaviors, in order to determine adaptive from maladaptive behaviors.
• Patient centred targeted management to effectively communicate, teach body relaxation strategies, normalise functional movement patterns and discourage pain behaviors, utilising mindfulness and motivational principles. Feedback (visual, sensory and verbal) and activity pacing are components of this process.
• Specific exercise progression for maladaptive movement and control impairments.
