Modern psychology is essential for optimizing education and practice in manual therapy, but it is often not given the attention it deserves. massage therapy needs to be informed by modern psychology. This presentation will define modern psychology and outline six specific ways in which it can inform manual therapy:
Increase our understanding of treatment processes and outcomes / Strengthen critical thinking skills & combat the pernicious influence of pseudoscience / Promote interprofessionalism / Connect with the most relevant research / Optimize self-care and career longevity / Develop Affective Massage Therapy as an advanced specialty.
