BAPAM Training Day May 19 – Key Psychological Issues

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

BAPAM training events provide an in-depth look at some of the key areas of Performing Arts Medicine and unique insights into aspects of performers’ health and wellbeing. Our May 2012 event focuses on the psychological issues encountered by performing artists.

Performing artists work in a highly competitive industry and are driven to achieve perfect results. Stress and anxiety are often in the background when performers present with physical symptoms. In addition, the psychological impact of an injury affecting performance can be tough to deal with. All health care practitioners working with actors, dancers, musicians, singers and other artists will find something here to apply in their practice.

BAPAM training events may be used as part of your CPD portfolio.

The programme for the day covers:

  • Diagnosis
  • Depression/bipolar
  • Anxiety
  • Career choices and development
  • Performance coaching
  • Autogenic Training
  • Role play as a therapeutic tool
  • Screening tools for psychological problems

The cost of the day is £65 (Students £35).

Venue: University College London, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT – Closest tube: Warren Street. We will update with the exact room numbers/campus directions as soon as we have confirmation from UCL.
