TREATMENT OF PELVIC FLOOR
DISORDERS ONLINE COURSE
This 45 hour CE Credit Course presented by Richard A. Sherman, Ph.D. is the APA and BCIA approved course on biofeedback for urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, etc. This course is set at the level of a typical 3 credit post-licensure, introductory level course. The course is targeted to licensed / certified clinicians such as psychologists, counselors, physical therapists, social workers, nurses, and physicians as well as to graduate students. This course provides a basic understanding of pelvic floor functions and structures along with clinical etiologies of pelvic floor disorders treated by behavioral interventions. Provide sufficient information on research supporting behavioral interventions, and clinical protocols for behavioral interventions to bring health care providers to the point where they have the knowledge base needed to provide these interventions to their clients within their scopes of practice and expertise after the providers gain hands-on experience by working with experienced practitioners. You may wish to contact the Foundation for information about hands-on training.
Learning objectives: The course objective is to provide the depth of knowledge in pelvic area A&P, psychophysiology, biofeedback equipment, and training techniques which clinicians require to perform psychophysiologically oriented assessments and biofeedback and other behaviorally based interventions for pelvic floor disorders. This information is crucial to effectively adding these techniques to a clinician's practice.
Format: Students learn by watching audiovisual lectures provided on CDs, watching several movies, reading assignments both from materials provided on the CD and standard texts, and interacting with their instructor via e-mail. They answer short essay questions after each lecture rather than taking exams. Previous students have found that this course takes between 45 and 95 hours of work to perform.
