The Pelvic Pothole: Pelvic anatomy

The pelvis has been neglected for a long time in healthcare and rehabilitation. This course will cover pelvic anatomy based on dissections, function and clinical experience. Anatomy is not as it seems in the anatomy books, and we will look at what this means for our work with clients. This course is for all who want to know more about the pelvis, and not only those working with pelvic dysfunction. The pelvis is intricately connected to the rest of the body, and we will look at how it can be a part of understanding dysfunction in other parts of the body.

 

The Pivotal Pelvis: Pelvic health

Pelvic health: the pivotal pelvis is a workshop aimed at exploring pelvic health from a specific model that looks at everything from your different body-systems to the larger sociocultural and environmental systems that you are a part of. It is aimed at people with a particular interest in learning more about the pelvis and how they can impact their pelvic health. Many of us have a very limited understanding of our pelvic region, how it functions and is impacted by the world around us, and even less understanding of what to do when this region doesn’t function the way we need it to. The aim is thus to teach you more about your pelvis, and help you discover what you can do to impact your own pelvic health. There is both a theoretical and practical component, where the practical is based on yoga asanas, breathing and meditation. This workshop is inspired by knowledge developed from years of working – and living – with the human body, combined with an enhanced understanding of the body informed by in-depth dissection studies.

Pain & Culture

This lecture takes a critical view of what it means to work with people who suffer from chronic pain, from a cultural perspective. Based on an analysis of what we mean with pain and culture, we focus on the own culture and the medical and healthcare systems culture, when meeting people in pain.

 

Crossing borders: intercultural collaboration

This workshop is based on the book, Crossing borders, where we will look at what intercultural collaboration means in our everyday lives. This course can be adapted to various contexts, ranging from development- and humanitarian work, to health care and educational practices. It is aimed at anyone interested in learning more about how we can live and learn together, peacefully and constructively.
