Description

This course briefly covers the rationale, theory and evidence-base for the use of Tai Chi and related approaches (qi gong, yoga and mindfulness) within neuro-rehabilitation. A critical perspective is offered on existing gaps in the literature and inter-relationship of research findings with clinical need and gaps in service models.

The specific application of tai chi in fatigue management and wellbeing support for people with aphasia is considered in turn. In addition to powerpoint-based didactic learning, experiential practical qi gong exercises are demonstrated to help professionals experience the concepts we discuss in the course. This course is NOT an instructional programme in how to teach tai chi movements to people with neurological conditions.

Who this course is for:
  • Physiotherapists; Tai Chi Instructors; Clinical neuropsychologists; clinical psychologists in neuropsychology; psychotherapists; counsellors; speech and language therapists; occupational therapists; rehabilitation doctors and nurses; students
