It’s functional therapy, and it’s cognitive to boot!

Kjartan provides us with methods you can easily take into your daily practise to improve your communication with your patient as well as help the progress on their journey of rehabilitation, stepping out of the “I will fix you” mentality and more into a therapeutic alliance *with* the patient.
