In an exciting upcoming fall event, the Section on Women’s Health is proud to announce it will be partnering with the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) to host a FREE live webinar. This interactive question and answer style event will feature a panel of knowledgeable speakers from both the SoWH and ISSTD. The emphasis of this event will centralize around trauma, abuse, and pelvic health physical therapy. It will be an excellent opportunity to dive deeper into trauma to explore how it affects our patients, how it may impact our treatment, and how we can better serve our patients with this common yet unique history. We want to hear from you! In the upcoming month, we will be sending out a call for questions that you want to hear answered by this incredibly talented and diverse panel.
