We are excited to be bringing you Sally Cumming's and her wonderful Calm, Healthy Minds 8-week program

This 8 week psychological resilience program, presented by Sally Cumming (Engage Health), is an engaging program based on neuroscience.

 

About this Event

 

The Myotherapy Association of Australia is delighted to offer all members and non-members, an opportunity to participate in this exciting evidence-based Professional Development program.

We are passionate about teaching practices that not only change the brain, but also support positive mental health, self-care and resilience.

What will I get out of this program?

You will develop tools to help manage stress, anxiety, calm the mind, regulate difficult emotions, improve relationships and switch-off from work.

Feeling calmer, communicating more effectively, sleeping better and having a greater sense of enjoyment in life are some of the benefits to look forward to. You will also learn practices and tools that may be useful to assist with pain, emotional distress, dysregulation and other difficulties. These tools can be utilised, where appropriate, with your clinical patients.
