Advanced Assessment & Session Design
Sunday, March 10th 2024
Continuing Education Hours - 6
Course tuition: $ 170
We have three primary goals with this course:
#1 Learn to take a subjective history that is
time efficient, improves clinical reasoning and initiates the therapeutic alliance.
#2 Learn to take active and passive objective measurements that provide the therapist with a clear test / retest strategy.
#3 Take all the information gained from the subjective and objective
assessment and design a session that helps your clients move more and with less pain.
The magic is in the process, not the modality. You have plenty of techniques, now learn to apply them.
Learning Objective #1: Students will learn and identify the 7 steps of the scientific method in the client assessment process
Learning Objective #2: Students will learn to perform a subjective interview that builds the therapeutic alliance and informs clinical reasoning. They will demonstrate proficiency through trades with classmates.
Learning Objective #3: Students will learn and perform 7 key range of motion table tests on multiple class mates.
Learning Objective #4: Students will learn and perform 5 key active range of motion tests on multiple class mates.
Learning Objective #5: Students will learn to take the information from the subjective and objective assessments and apply clinical reasoning to design sessions based on archetypal presentations.
Learning Objective #6: Students will learn to take subjective / objective from classmates and apply clinical reasoning to design sessions based on actual presentations. They will then present their reasoning to the class and engage in discussion with the group.
