Hi everyone, I thought you might like to know about an online webinar hosted by Alan Gordon, LCSW and John Stracks, MD. Both Alan Gordon and Dr. Stracks recovered from their own TMS and have tremendous passion for spreading the word. They're both very smart and I have great respect for both of them. If you are interested in this, you may also want to check out Alan's TMS Recovery Program or submit your question to the Ask A TMS Therapist program, as Alan runs both of those. For internet events like this, it's always important to pay attention to time zones. In this case, the time is Thursday, June 25th 6 to 8 p.m. Central Time, 4 to 6 p.m. Pacific Time. Here is an image of the brochure: (but mind the time zone unless you happen to live in Central) If you have trouble reading the image, here is the text of the brochure: Mindbody Medicine Program Presents Breaking The Pain Cycle Techniques and tools to overcome chronic pain and other physical symptoms Join Dr. John Stracks, Director of Mindbody Medicine at Northwestern Medicine and Alan Gordon, LCSW, for a two hour webinar on using psychological techniques to heal chronic pain and other physical symptoms.
