In this module students will learn the basic premises of this emerging body of research. We will also explore how this changes our historical understanding of how manual therapy works, and how this affects the explanatory models and narratives that we use with our patients. We will explore how this shift takes us from an operator model to that of an interactor/educator model.
In this module the relationship between thoughts, structure, and function will be examined. A deeper look at how the patients emotional experiences, belief systems, and habitual thinking patterns influence physical health and well being will be explored.
PRACTITIONER SELF AWARENESS AND THERAPEUTIC RELATIONSHIP
In this module we will further examine how the state and process of the practitioner influences the ability of the patient to make their own shifts. What we as clinicians bring into the session mentally and emotionally will serve as either a block or a window of opportunity for the patient. Essentially, we can't take someone where we haven't gone ourselves.
In this module we will explore linear and non-linear movement therapies, and how they can be used to enhance the delivery of the SI experience. We will also explore static versus dynamic assessment and passive versus active movement. The ultimate goal is to enhance the patient's ability to own the changes that have occurred during our time with them.
In this module we will explore working outside of The Basic 10. We will use all of the fundamentals and insights that The Basic 10 sessions teach us about how a person looks and senses after each session, and apply this to situations where The Basic 10 is not pragmatic. This is the ultimate test of an SI practitioner.
INCORPORATING OSTEOPATHY INTO THE DELIVERY OF SI
In this module we will explore how to integrate various Osteopathic techniques and principles into the SI paradigm. We will compare and contrast the philosophies, principles, and theoretical basis of the two disciplines. In addition, we will take a deep dive into understanding how Osteopathic techniques can support our goals as SI practitioners and when to employ them. This is primarily a hands on module where students will give SI sessions that include osteopathic techniques. Students will be required to have completed prior visceral and cranial training to sit for this course.
