    The evidence is in... psychological and social wellbeing are two of the most important factors for good health in today's world. If you're a Psychologist, Social Worker, Counsellor or any allied health professional who provides psychosocial services, then you're the backbone of putting this evidence into practice to enable people to be their best selves.

  • Extra courses and resources for exercise focused allied health professionals

    Exercise is one of the most effective, yet often under-utilised methods for helping people improve their health. At Applied 8, the majority of our offerings are designed to suit a variety of allied health professional groups. But, on top of this, we also offer some courses and resources that have a focus on exercise. If you're an exercise focused allied health professional, like an Exercise Physiologist, Exercise Scientist, Physio, or any other allied health practitioner that uses exercise in their toolkit of interventions, this is relevant to you. In addition to our general options, look for our courses and resources on topics like skill acquisition, motor learning and the roles of exercise professionals in healthcare.
