ABMP is proud to partner with author and educator Ruth Werner on the launch of the new podcast I Have a Client Who … With decades of experience and dedication to the research of pathologies, Werner tackles listeners’ real life stories about clients with conditions that are perplexing or confusing once a week.

“We’re so excited to partner with Ruth once again and see this new podcast launch on the ABMP Podcast Network,” says Darren Buford, senior director, communications. “We see Ruth’s exceptional podcast as an extension of the good work we did together bringing ABMP Pocket Pathology to life last year.”
Werner’s first episode is titled “A Stroke Survivor’s Prognosis” and focuses on a client recovering from a stroke who seems to have given up on getting better. His massage therapist would like to help, but what can they do? Werner provides a description of stroke, how it affects function, and the role of massage therapy in this context.
In this podcast, you’ll learn about:
- Ethical boundaries
- Communication skills
- Options when working with this clientele
