The HOPA group Ming Mentoring sessions, hosted by Rebecca Avern, are an opportunity for acupuncturists to delve into a particular aspect of paediatric acupuncture. 

They are focussed on the nitty gritty and reality of working with children, rather than the theory that we can all get from the text books!  They are designed to help you build confidence in treating children and to connect with other practitioners.

Sessions are held monthly.
