Progress in Practice: Activity-Based Restorative Therapy (ABRT)
Progress in Practice is a premier educational event bringing together physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, and rehabilitation professionals.
This two-day workshop offers participants the opportunity to gain skills to advance their practice in neurorehabilitation. Shifting from traditional compensatory models to a more progressive restorative focus, Activity-Based Restorative Therapy (ABRT) uses a combination of rehabilitation techniques to provide near-normal input to both optimize the nervous system for recovery and offset rapid aging and chronic complications.
Participants will learn the scientific basis, hands-on skills, and clinical decision-making associated with implementation of an ABRT program through this intensive two-day course.
Following completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the scientific and therapeutic principles of ABRT and appropriate clinical applications
- Demonstrate specific clinical skills within the key components of ABRT and strategies to design treatments, given practical constraints, involving each of the components
- Display clinical reasoning and synthesis of ABRT principles through case studies
