Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in A Manual Therapy Setting
Bio: Alison Sim has a keen interest in educating health professionals about the latest science surrounding pain, especially pain that hangs around- chronic or persisting pain. Pain science can be quite disheartening as a topic- there are no magic bullets or quick fixes. This can make engaging with this material difficult, with the result that practitioners might choose to avoid exploring the material at all.
Alison's goals in teaching on the topic are to take the science and help practitioners translate it into tangible, clinical concepts and tools. Alison qualified as an osteopath in 2001 in Melbourne, Australia. She is currently undertaking a Masters of Pain Management through the Sydney University Medical School and Royal North Shore Pain Management Research Institute. She has lectured at Australian Catholic University, Victoria University, and RMIT in a variety of science and clinical subject. She has also worked as part of the teaching team at Deakin University Medical School.
