Health Care

Health Care

Gain a personal perspective of rehabilitation from a severe and life-altering injury. I reach health-care professionals from all types of nursing to a wide range of therapies. The presentation is designed to show the importance of forming bonds and using motivational techniques to improve the patient’s recovery. I will also explain why patients can have different attitudes while facing similar siuations, helping the professional to aid in the emotional recovery of their patient. I recount my discovery of the "Healing Cycle," showing why clients have good and bad days, what they actually mean, and how to direct a client's recovery to a positive outcome.
