Introduction to PTSD, common presentation and implications for physiotherapy. This will include a case study.
Sexuality is an essential part of our being. When things are going well, it fits within our other many identities. However, if our sexuality is not going how we would like it, it can become overwhelming and cloud all aspects of our life. Unfortunately, in our society there remains so much shame around sexual expression, and we are hemmed in by social expectations steaming from ridged views on masculinity and femininity and 'normal sexual behaviour'.
As professionals, we work within our culture, as such you may also experience your own shame or fear about asking questions about sexual trauma. That's understandable. We are not taught how to talk about sex when it is going well, let alone when it is not.
However, physiotherapists are in a unique position to help people heal from their sexual shame. In doing your job, touching client's bodies, you can trigger memories of sexual trauma. Triggering is not the problem, in fact it offers an opportunity for restoration and healing. You don't have to be an expert. Empathy dissolves shame. Empathy can be communicated by giving permission to speak, by asking questions, acknowledging the physical reactions, with non-judgemental listening and validation, without trying to fix any feeling, empathy is what helps people heal.

Infant and parental mental health is the cornerstone of learning and development in our children and shapes our well-being and lives. But are we recognising mental health concerns and identifying families who are at risk for mental illness? Are we responding to the needs of families? Are we knowledgable in referral pathways for our vulnerable families? Are we equipping ourselves with the tools to nuture the infant-parent relationship and positive connections with our families?
We hope that you can prioritise this special evening event with guest speaker Mandy Seyfang Clinical Senior Occupational Therapist, who will help guide our understandings of mental health in the early years, and the important role we can play in nurturing and supporting well-being in our families.

Chronic elbow pain reflects a complex aetiology. Understanding the contribution of local tissue pathology, and sensory and motor system impairments to the individual's clinical presentation of elbow pain will assist clinicians in implementing an effective treatment program.This course is designed to give physiotherapists applied knowledge of the latest evidence regarding individualising treatment for people with chronic elbow injuries and will present a contemporary, evidence-based clinical pathway for treatment of elbow pain, and discuss treatment options based on clinical presentation, prognostic indicators and underlying pathophysiology.
Presented by Specialist Sports Physiotherapist Jane Rooney, the course will cover contemporary evidence based assessment and management of commonly presenting acute knee conditions. This 2-day course has a large practical component and interactive clinical problem solving.
