Workshop Description

This presentation is for the clinical psychologist or other therapist who may run into patients who complain of concussion or PCS and struggle with how to intervene. The hour-long presentation will describe PCS clinically, describe the difference between a neurocognitive disorder and PCS, discuss the causes and factors which are related to PCS (and those which are not), and describe iatrogenesis and what role that may play. A deeper understanding of how this issue may impact clients in significant and damaging ways will be sought. Emphasis will be placed on how to avoid iatrogenesis.
