The Body Touch - Techniques of Functional Analysis in Action
7:00pm - 9:00pm AEDT, 9 March 2023
Working physically with clients is more and more becoming an important skill in the therapeutic intervention for psychotherapists and counsellors.
Will Davis will showcase the physical application of Function Analysis touch-technique. He will show recordings of sessions where he will be applying the physical work as he narrates to us what he is actual doing. He will address the reasons for choosing to work on that particular part of the body, the information coming from the body of the client, changes in breath, quality of tissue and the emotions and awareness brought about by the work.
In the highly interactive webinar participants are welcomed to ask questions, give comments or feedback after each of the presentations.
This webinar counts as 2 hours of Category A CPD (Continuing Professional Development) if you participate online, or 2 hours of Category B CPD if you are watching the recording.
You must attend no less than 75% of a live webinar in order to receive a CPD certificate.
