  What's the Difference?  

Between a Study Group and a Practice Group?
 
A Practice Group is led by someone who has taken courses and helps the community of therapists come together to practice on one another.  They will organize the dates, times, meeting locations.  They may have resources available like websites and Facebook pages, and contact information for local assistance.

A Study Group is led by someone qualified by the Institute and recommended by at least one instructor.  The group leader will usually select a topic to review and practice, and will answer questions and correct hand positions, if needed.

Excellent! Well organized, easy to digest. I loved the analogies to common items with explaining the theory - it makes it easy to pass on explanations to clients.

CS2 has increased my knowledge base and tool box to further increase clientele and help current clients.

CASE STORY
CST in the Role of Alleviating Symptoms Associated with PTSD
 
April Rex, DPT had been working through the VM and NM curriculum for years, and she became increasingly interested in CST following some recent evidence that it is effective when treating PTSD. 
 
On January 1, 2017, her husband, a firefighter, responded to a triple fatal fire and helped to put the fire out. For the next 5 days, he performed body recovery, arson investigation, and cleanup. He had been on the job for nearly 17 years and while this was not the worst incident he experienced, it was definitely the one that broke him.
