People asked him, “What’s it like for the grief expert to lose his son?” He would answer, “The grief expert did not lose his son, the father did.” Everything he knew about grief turned out to be true. David had to go through the five stages of grief but found himself wanting more from the experience – he wanted to find meaning in his life after such a terrible loss. He learned that broken heart syndrome is real and he realized he would either die of it or live with it, and that healing occurs not when grief gets smaller, but when life gets bigger. This led to the discovery of the 6th stage of grief – finding meaning. Based on David Kessler’s new book, Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief, this seminar is designed to help professionals guide people through life’s worst moments to find meaning after loss. All types of loss will be covered, including betrayal, loss of a parent or family member, and loss due to addiction, mental illness and suicide. After attending this seminar, you will be able to enhance your work with those who have dealt with any kind of loss. It will fill you with new insight, tools, strategies, and inspiring information, leaving you looking forward to the next day … so you can immediately begin to use all you have learned! Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the world’s leading grief experts – sign up today! Objectives: • Apply meaning-making principles to help cope with all types of loss. • Determine ways to use meaning to help remember loved ones with more love than pain. • Use concepts of meaning making to resolve the internal struggle of “why did this happen?” and “why did this happen to me?” • Determine why children are often the forgotten grievers and how to help them through their grief. • Analyze ways to incorporate meaning to help cope with complicated grief. • Utilize non-directive ways to address guilt, shame and stigma associated with grief.

Finding Dysfunction: A Master Clinician's Approach to Finding the Cause of Patients' Pain is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Feb 22 - 23, 2020 at Mendelson Kornblum Physical Therapy, Livonia, Michigan, United States of America. Course Description: This class will give the participant a unique and systematic framework for assessing the body and finding the true cause (what we call the driver) of a patient’s limitation of motion and / or symptoms The major focus-points of the approach are the muscle, joint, fascial, and compensatory barriers that a patient has in their system that are causing their limitation of motion and / or symptoms. The student will learn to assess the body in such a way that they will look beyond the pain area and find the dysfunctions causing the limitation of motion and / or symptoms, which are often times in other parts of the body. The 2-day course will cover the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle, and foot including looking at spinal referred pain. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • synthesize data from a clinical exam to develop a master-level approach to finding the root cause of upper and lower extremity pain. • identify 4 pathological barriers to motion which can contribute to peripheral joint pain. • apply the Joint-Muscle-Fascia-Compensation Framework to justify single and multiple dysfunctions that can contribute to peripheral joint pain. • devise 1-2 pain pathways for upper and lower extremity joints in all 3 planes of motion. • apply the Hypo-Hyper Compensation Model, and as outlined in the manual, and identify 4 ways in which this model contributes to the origin of peripheral joint pain. • accurately describe the significance of applying the Test-Treat-Retest concept and justify the use of 1-2 manual therapy techniques for each pathological barrier to motion. • explain 2 mechanisms by which mechanical pain is perceived in the brain. • interpret 3 key pieces of the patient's subjective history that give the clinician information by which to find dysfunction effectively and efficiently.
