Target Audience


Medical and Allied Health Professionals (MD, DO, DC, NP, PA, RN, CNMW, PT, OT) and those whose licenses allow them to affect tissue movement as a part of their scope of practice.

Description


This course is an intensive version of the Functional Bowen™ Pediatric Application Process that has been specifically designed for those licensed Healthcare Professionals in the Breastfeeding, Maternal/Child Health & Family Support Field.

Synopsis


Baby Nursing

This course is a 3.5 day intensive packed with myo-fascial movement theory using a “global” approach to structural assessment and hands-on practice in use of The Pediatric Functional Bowen™ Method. This course teaches the clinician advance skills in working to resolve structural barriers in the mother/infant dyad who struggle with breastfeeding difficulties/dysfunctions. Further, it explores advanced assessment skills in determining those predisposing factors relating to these barriers and their possible affects on infant “functional mobility” in the achievement/retention of successful breastfeeding, normal structural development as well as meeting developmental milestones.

Outcomes


This course is intended to vastly improve the clinician’s assessment skills and provide commensurate manipulative tools in enabling them to assist in the resolve of the often hidden structural barriers and their profoundly destructive manifestations. A full list of objectives may be reviewed at the link below.

Cost

Student Reviews by RN’s, IBCLC’s and other health professionals in March of 2017 / Pennsylvania:


“I thoroughly enjoyed how eye-opening this class was! Seeing the dysfunctions on an actual child and seeing them resolved only made me more exited to learn this…amazing! The progression pictures were so very helpful to solidify the concept of what happens in the body when dysfunction isn’t released early. Watching while children were worked on was so helpful, as was having Judy go through how to deal with different age groups.” Cara D.

“Very, very helpful to observe treating children. Explanations were clear and illustrations made things clearer.” Lynn P.

“I very much enjoyed this program and recommend all lactation consultants take it. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.” Kara P.

“I appreciate Judy’s ability to read her audience! She provides very technical information in a practical manner. She is impacting health care wherever she presents. Judy is very relatable, understanding, empathetic, knowledgeable and effective. She is improving the quality of life one infant at a time!” Donna D.

Synopsis


woman studyingThis course is an advanced 2½ day (19 hours) intensive class designed for those already trained in the Functional Bowen™ Concept I © who want to advance their knowledge base in assessment skills and gain additional therapeutic techniques and more complex application strategies. This is the course that reviews and fine tunes what you already know and takes it to the next level. It is structured to cover more in-depth the areas (body quadrants) covered in Concepts I. The information acquired in the Concepts II class is devoted to learning advanced directed muscle release techniques, as well as addressing a more advanced approach to the rehabilitative process and/or dealing with mobility impairments. It is also lecture-based followed by ample demonstration and a time of hands-on learning with classmates. This course includes all items listed below and references the required functional anatomy book** from the Functional Bowen™ Concepts I class. Certification of course completion is provided.

This course requires the following:

– Successful completion of Functional Bowen™ Concepts I ©

– A foundation in anatomy as direct correlation is always made in the structural application of this technique. Concepts taught will be clinically approached with a scientifically-based focus

– A waiver of participation is required for the hands-on portion

– Purchase and have available during class the book** by Christy Cael: Functional Anatomy – Musculoskeletal Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Palpation for Manual Therapists, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011, ISBN 9781609138363

Objectives


questions and speech balloons

Participants will be able to:

Course Information


Course Synopsis:


How B.E.S.T. Relates To Breast 1

Learn Structural Assessment Skills for Infants/Children learning to quickly evaluate for muscle tension and its involvement in noted Breastfeeding Dysfunctions and Developmental Delays. This class will add new eyes to your practice and tools in your skill set to bring resolves.

Course Objectives:


1. Recognizing or Becoming Aware of:

  • Often unseen muscle-related structural barriers
  • Predisposing factors affecting an infant’s “functional mobility”
  • Breastfeeding challenges that demonstrate Structural Dysfunction

2. Improve assessment skills of:

  • Overlooked structural manifestations

3. Gain insights into an improved evaluation process

  • Aid resolve breastfeeding difficulties for the family unit

4. Recognition of Structural Barriers with an emphasis on:

  • Self-help techniques, teaching/training parents across cultural barriers
  • When/who to refer parents/caregivers to for help

Course Outcomes:


How B.E.S.T. Relates To Breast 2

Be able to:

  • Identify the correlation between higher than normal muscle tonus and the often structurally-related breastfeeding challenges in the infant/mother dyad.
  • Identify at least three predisposing factors in a “normal” delivery that lend themselves to the hidden barriers to functional mobility.
  • Recognize structural manifestations (how they present) which may need referral to assist in the resolve of related breastfeeding barriers.
  • Define the following areas of Assessment, Adaptation and Intervention that are associated with these hidden structural barriers to breastfeeding.

How B.E.S.T. Relates To Breast 3

Class Format: Similar to a breakout session where these is some lecture/demonstration but a lot of discussion and time allowed for questions and answers. Come and learn an essential skill.

Note: Wherever possible a live demonstration will be incorporated. Please be aware, however, that since Ms. Terwilliger is skilled to release any child whom she evaluates in class for educational purposes, she will likewise offer a therapeutic release at that time. Those student’s attendance whose licensure permits manipulative work on infants are welcome to ask further questions.

 

 


 

NOTE: The How BEST (Basic Evalution of Structural Tension) Relates to Breast© class serves as an introduction of the need for assessment and a cursory way to go about it with self help strategies and referring as needed in mind.

 


 

This lecture/course is intended to familiarize the medical and allied health community in the recognition of the often-overlooked muscle-related structural barriers to breastfeeding. It provides a discussion of clues to the predisposing factors of these barriers and explores their affect on infant “functional mobility” as it relates to the achievement of successful breastfeeding. It is intended to improve the clinician’s assessment skills as they work with the mother/infant dyad in resolving breastfeeding difficulties/dysfunctions by development of insight into these often hidden and profoundly destructive structural manifestations. Recognition of these barriers with an emphasis on self-help techniques and when/who to refer parents/caregivers to for help, together with how to best meet their teaching/training needs across cultural barriers, is discussed. The ultimate purpose is the achievement of insight to improve the clinician’s evaluation process, better enabling them to promote, enhance and even save the breastfeeding experience of the families served.
