Hi Everyone, I am excited to announce that Odyssey Karate will be hosting a new workshop on April 27th. It is called "Maintaining Mind/Body Integration for Therapists, Clinicians and Caregivers". This is one of the areas of my work that I am most passionate about because it gives me the opportunity to help those that help others. There is description of the workshop below. I also have attached a flyer with details on the date, time and location. Be sure to RSVP to reserve a space in the workshop. - Josh McManus - Maintaining Mind/Body Integration for Therapists, Clinicians and Caregivers The empathic relationships that we have with those that we care for can have a variety of effects on our physical, emotional and mental wellness. For those of us with occupations that center around helping others, this can have a significant impact on our overall well-being. This course is designed to provide therapists, clinicians and caregivers with tools and strategies to manage the effects of the empathic relationships they have with the patients they care for. - Improve your capacity to connect to those that you care for.
