Upcoming Online Events for Massage Schools and Students

The new ABMP Friday Forum Series: Online Edition will bring a series of presentations for massage and bodywork schools and students to help deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Titled “A Call to Courage in Times of Adversity,” the school presentations will take place on September 25 and October 2, and will feature Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator Amy Andrews McMaster.

In Part One on September 25, Amy will apply Brené Brown’s courageous leadership research to manage the ongoing school challenges during COVID-19. Come prepared to recharge with tools to increase resiliency, creativity, and courage through vulnerability among leadership, staff, and students.

In Part Two on October 2, Amy will apply Brené Brown’s courageous leadership research and tools for creating a safe environment by leaning into tough conversations. She’ll share tips and wisdom for choosing courage over comfort when it comes to keeping communication channels open when addressing racial inequality, general staff and student issues, or even COVID-19 protocol concerns.

In addition to the presentation, the instructor events will include online breakout sessions for attendees to connect and discuss the content as well as the issues affecting their schools and students.

The student session, created specifically in response to feedback from a recent survey of massage and bodywork students, will take place on Friday, October 9 and will help students "Embrace the Suck" during the pandemic through a discussion on vulnerability, braving tough times, removing our armor, and finding our call to courage. The event is free to all students in the profession, and registration is open at www.abmp.com/events/details/WA-100920.
