We hear lots about the 'biopsychosocial' model but we hear less about how to manage the psychosocial in the presence of physical injury. 

In this webinar, Tracey talks about how physiotherapists can help people with physical injuries who struggle with their mental health. Tracey will provide some tips for MSK physiotherapists on how to link the “bio” with the “psychosocial” in people with mental health conditions.
