Talli Rosenbaum, earned a Masters in Clinical Sociology and Counseling and a certificate in Mental Health Studies from the University of North Texas. She also has a bachelors degree in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University and before training in psychotherapy, treated patients as a physical therapist for 25 years. 

Dr. Rosenbaum will be speaking at this year’s International Pelvic Pain Society Conference, taking place in Chicago on October 13-16.  

Her lecture plans to acknowledge how the current biopyschosocial model divides aspects of treatment according to the physical or mental health practitioner. This leaves medical practitioners with few skills to address and treat anxiety, particularly when they are the ones to be confronted with anxious reactions in the clinic. While also acknowledging that many practitioners are supplementing their biomedical skills with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness and other ‘techniques’, it is nonetheless necessary for physical therapists, nurses and doctors to establish a trusting and secure therapeutic relationship with their clients. She also plans to address cultural sensitivity as it relates to the diverse populations that practitioners treat. 

Talli is joining us to talk about this very important topic and we are absolutely honored and so grateful to have her own the show.
