The study of social science helps people develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for the public good as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world. The individual disciplines that comprise social science are often taught independently, yet all of these disciplines recognize that they owe much to the others. Students today need to have a broad understanding of political and economic systems as well as a better understanding of world history. Knowledge of world geography and a grasp of how the concepts of social science can help interpret human actions and prepare them for careers and lifelong learning are also vital for today's student. All of these skills needed in the social sciences can be developed through a study of events occurring in the world at the current time.

Pain Reduction for Osteoarthritis and Nerve Impingements
This is a two day workshop. Day One: Osteoarthritis: Taut Band Therapy can help you provide greater reduction of pain, increases in range of motion and improved functional abilities for your patients with osteoarthritis. Injury, inflammation and pain within the joint capsule often provoke hypertonic conditions in the muscles that provide stability and movement for that joint. Although secondary in cause, these muscular problems often become primary in the generation of pain and associated disability. Studies of joints and strategies for pain reduction will include shoulder, hip and knee; treatment and hands-on sessions will focus on hip joints. Day Two is Nerve Impingements: Learn how to better assist your patients with nerve impingements. Understanding the basics of neural anatomy and physiology will enable more precise assessments and more effective therapeutic approaches. Participants will learn the two primary causes of nerve root compression and will examine the most notable areas of local nerve impingements generated by muscular tension. Bodywork strategies will be discussed and demonstrated; there may be less hands-on practice than in other classes. Prepayment required. Deadline for enrollment is September 9, 2016.
