Injury Management Series

This 6-part webinar series – Injury Management from a Psychological Perspective – provides concepts, tools, and strategies to address the challenges of managing a musculoskeletal injury.  The webinar series is supported by a downloadable pdf workbook with activity worksheets that allow individuals to create a personal mental performance program towards achieving successful, positive, and sustainable outcomes relating to work, daily living, leisure & hobbies, wellness, and social interactions.

For PATIENTS / INDIVIDUALS experiencing an injury – this webinar series and workbook were designed specifically for you to provide guidance, support, and resources around navigating the psychosocial challenges of managing an injury. 

For PRACTITIONERS – this webinar series and workbook are presented from patient’s   perspective in dealing with an injury and the related psychosocial challenges that are commonly experienced.  Too often practitioners feel unprepared to engage with patients when challenging psycho-social topics or conversations come up, so this webinar series will help you, as a practitioner, to grasp some effective concepts, tools, and strategies to increase your confidence and effectiveness in supporting patients and directing them to resources (like this webinar series).   

Each self-paced webinar (module) is approximately 40min in length running-time video, but when pausing the video to complete the related activities in your workbook it may take you approximately 60min to complete each one.  Being self-paced, you have the ability to break each webinar down into shorter parts to fit your schedule, and you can do one a day or one a week, whatever works best for you.  

At the start of the workbook there is a section that presents some fundamental Psychological Guidelines to Injury Rehabilitation and these guidelines underpin the concepts and activities throughout the webinars (modules) and workbook, and at the end of each one you will be directed back to these guidelines to complete a self-assessment and monitor your progress.
