Le Pub Home Brew


Now I’m the kinda woman who enjoys a bevvie or two – and I do love to talk! Combine them both with my favourite topic of pain, and you end up with Le Pub Home brew…and I’m speaking THIS SATURDAY!!

My topic? Let’s stop focusing on pain, because we have a few elephants in the room we need to discuss.

Come and join me as I poke and prod at assumptions made about why people come asking for help with their pain, why clinicians often focus on the wrong thing, why we need to listen to the messages buried beneath the “take my pain away” call – and why the skills clinicians have HAD to draw on during lockdown might just well be the Most Important Skills they have (psssst! Call them “soft skills” at your peril!).

I might wander into some philosophy, some sociology, and probably I’ll tread on some toes and push my own agenda to have more people recognise what occupational therapists already know about context, meaning, values and being flexible.
