135498| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Hypnotherapy - Overcoming Setbacks & Achieving Optimum Performance|

Discover the secret to success for your patients who are involved in sport. We have invited Clinical Hypnotherapist, Meera Mehat, to explore the brain from a hypnotic perspective and teach us about enhancing and improving performance and overcoming obstacles. By creating an optimal environment, and the right habits, attitude and perspective, we will be exploring how you can help your patients achieve their goals.

The brain can sometimes be a complex site of mental barriers and adverse mindsets. However, with the help of Meera, we will be understanding how the brain works, and therefore how your patients can refocus their mind on their objectives. She will be delving into forming positive habits to trigger change, including a discussion on the pain/pleasure principle. We will learn about switching the mindset of those who have experienced setbacks such as injuries, and how they can conquer self-doubts that may follow.

We will be facilitating two activities; the first will illustrate the power of the mind on the body, and the second will involve audience participation in understanding the effect of visualisation on your body. With such demonstrations, Meera will be teaching us how attitude adjustment can be used to achieve the right results.

Getting in ‘the zone’ and creating calm are also some of the ways in which we can create an optimal environment for success. We will be learning how these settings can be best established and maintained, as well as how victories should be celebrated.

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand how the brain works from a hypnotic perspective
  • Learn how reprogramming the brain to form new habits, adjust attitude and triggering change can help sportspeople to achieve success and overcome setbacks
  • Enhance your knowledge of the ways to create an optimum environment and celebrate success

135497| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Ankle Sprains – To Be or Not To Be?|

A sprained ankle is a common injury, but when is there more to a sprain than meets the eye? Sprained ankles are not a homogenous entity. To confuse matters, certain conditions can mimic the common garden variety sprained ankles. It is crucial to accurately diagnosis the injury and not label the injury “just a sprain”.

Not managed properly, complications can arise such as chronic ankle instability to even end stage ankle arthritis. 

If ankle sprains are your Achilles' heel, join this interactive webinar featuring Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in foot and ankle conditions, Mr Ahmad Malik. 

We will be using case studies and imaging examples to make a differential diagnostic workup and deciding on the best treatment routes depending on the diagnosis. Focusing on non-surgical rehabilitation, Mr Malik ensures that his patients understand their options and have tried all other pathways before surgery is necessary. 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the aetiologies, symptoms and differences between true ankle sprains, chronic ankle sprains and conditions which mimic ankle sprains
  • Make a differential diagnosis and spot the signs in imaging examples
  • Enhance your knowledge on how to classify and treat each condition conservatively depending on the severity

Agenda

  • Ankle sprains
  • High ankle sprains
  • Chronic ankle sprains
  • Conditions which mimic ankle sprains
  • Investigations and imaging
  • Differential diagnosis
  • Rehabilitation options – non-surgical approach

135494| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| How to Be Productive Working at Home|

Overview:

As you eagerly anticipate your work at home life, different challenges will beset you depending on your personality, work requirements, and established lifestyle.

Are your personal tendencies to work until burnout sets in causing bitter feelings that coworkers are not working as hard?

On the flip side, do your personal predispositions mean you may get so distracted and interrupted that you turn in work late and can't meet deadlines?

Typical challenges we will cover in this webinar are how to:

  • Evaluate your personality and make goals for your work routine

135493| NetZealous LLC, DBA TrainHR| Harness Your Energy - Build Your Resilience: Lessons To De-stress, Decompress, and Gain More Life|

Overview:

Success and longevity in our high-pressure-world hinges not just on our knowledge, but also on our ability to recover and remain energized during challenging situations and organizational changes.

Research shows that burnout and role overload are pervasive and that our mental health is at risk. Successful leaders know that the key to keeping their team healthy and productive is to understand what engages and renews them, and how to help them build their resiliency tool belt. Successful leaders also know that they must build their own resiliency before they can help their team.

Why you should Attend:The way in which we work and the environment that we work in, can cause exhaustion and burnout. Without the right resiliency tools, stress can build to a level that seems too difficult to handle and can leave you feeling depleted. These reactions can leave us exposed to a variety of illnesses and injuries or can take us away from our life goals.

Overview:

The circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) are continuing to develop hourly (let alone daily), and with the rapid-fire nature of modern media and social media channels, details vary from broadcast to broadcast, leaving many in the workforce in confusion and fear.

Most are confused about the next steps they should take, either paralysed by fear, worried about their future or in the shock and denial phase of the crisis.

Having a plan is the best course of action for any business, however for many, especially those who have not implemented crisis management plans in the past, we are entering new territory.

The pandemic is creating a constantly changing national condition which has employers feeling the pressure and unfortunately due to the overload of news and information (often contradicting itself) leaders are running the risk of being ambitious in their communication and actions with employees.
