Course Description: 
Athletic Trainers are often faced with critical incidents such as the death of an athlete or colleague, a catastrophic injury or a significant personal or work-related event affecting those around him or her. This course is designed for anyone who desires to increase their knowledge of individual (one-on-one) crisis intervention techniques after a traumatic event.

This is a hybrid course; the first half will be “home study” prior to the course date, the second half will be “student participation and roll-play” during the course. This course is limited to 30 participants. You must be paid in full for by June 30, 2019 to participate. This course is approved for 13 Category D CEU’s.
 
 
Speakers:
Brendon McDermott PhD, LAT, ATC; Luke Belval MS, ATC, LAT, CSCS, CES; Jonathan Wingo PhD, FACSM, ACSM EP-C

Course Description:
To meet the needs of athletes and help maximize their performance, a tailored approach to hydration based on the sport and the individual is needed. Led by top researchers in the hydration and heat-related illness fields, this pre-conference session will examine the latest research on each of the key factors to consider when hydration planning: fluid availability, environment and exercise intensity, in addition to breakout groups focused on the hydration needs of specific athletes.
