Synopsis


Application of brief interventions is an important topic in modern healthcare as it encourages patients to lead their own treatment and recovery as opposed to be dependent on the expert therapist to heal them. Application of the brief interventions is even more important in rehabilitation, behaviour change and management of chronic conditions. This workshop equips the clinicians with the tools, advanced skills and knowledge that help them to offer brief but to the point cognitive behavioural and motivational therapeutic interventions for patients experiencing hyperacusis.
