Conflict of Interest

The COTTAGe is the sole financial sponsor of all workshops. None of the content, materials, or instructors receive or will benefit from commercial support. The content/materials are based on the most current practice guidelines and empirical data; however, these are limited by methodological limitations of clinical trials and analyses and should be carefully considered when implementing techniques and strategies with patients. Alternate treatments exist and can be pursued for these conditions.
