Topic: Tina Jenson Friis - Founder of AnatomyTalk
Tina Jensen is the founder of AnatomyTalk who run a variation of continued professional development courses for instance the AnatomyTalk Dissecting Room Courses for Complementary and Physical Therapists at King’s College London. Tina is herself a health professional with an array of qualifications in psychology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, complementary therapies, teacher, author, and her career started with a BA in Business Management and Marketing. Tina says: For 10+ years, I have been a complementary therapist as well as teaching within the field of therapies. It is a field where continued professional development is essential. So why should we, as complementary and physical therapists be interested in the body under the skin? And is it morbid working with the dead? And should you join in?
Knowledge and understanding of the human body in the aspects of anatomy, physiology and pathology is foundational for anyone working with therapies, movement or treatment. When you study on cadavers, you go a step further in your knowledge base. Every time I return to the dissecting room, I learn more and develop my knowledge even further. My knowledge of the client under the skin gives me increased confidence in my work, but my dissecting room experiences also gives me an invaluable benefit in understanding the clients muscular/skeletal-related problems.
