Episode 43: On Injury: Overcoming Psychological Hurdles and the Benefits of Support

We cannot talk about recovering from an injury in full without addressing the importance of maintaining good mental health or discussing some of the psychological hurdles that appear during this process. A negative outlook, increased stress and decreased motivation can slow recovery. Feelings of isolation and depression can have the same effect. That’s why we thought it was imperative to have a mental health care practitioner on DanceWell this month to talk about recovering from injury. Join us on this episode as we welcome back Catherine Drury, LCSW on today's episode: On Injury: Overcoming Psychological Hurdles and the Benefits of Support.
