In part one of this two-part webinar, Sharon will first break down her diagnostic process and then in part two, offer two case studies as examples of this process. You will learn how to avoid jumping to conclusions so that the diagnosis is based on what is known for sure. You will see that, when see symptoms for what they are, rather than what they seem to be, the diagnosis often reveals itself and is not something we have to figure out or guess at.
How do we go from a patient walking into our clinic to a well crafted diagnosis and treatment method that we can feel confident about? What do you do with the information you gather? How do you process this information? Often the process a practitioner uses is vague and the diagnosis can feel murky or like a good guess. It can be difficult to apply the treatment in a focused way when this is true.Speaker Biography:
