Holistic Clinical Reasoning is an 8 hour pre- recorded series by Kim Barthel, OT and Shelley Mannell, PT created in collaboration with Integrative Education. The series describes and demonstrates the process by which clinicians can explore the many layers that contribute to the capacities and challenges experienced by our clients. Sensory processing, postural control, attachment, motor control, emotional regulation and cognition can all play a part.
In this one-hour Reflections on Holistic Clinical Reasoning session, Kim and Shelley will discuss the clues that may point to both strengths and challenges in each of these areas as well as the many interconnections between systems. As a team, they will demonstrate holistic clinical reasoning in practice as they analyze a short video clip of a client and highlight observations that illuminate possibilities for both assessment and treatment.
Upon completion of this one-hour online session, participants will understand how to use holistic clinical reasoning to:
Observe postural control contributions to the development of functional skills.
Observe sensory processing contributions to the development of functional skills.
Observe relational contributions to the development of functional skills.
