Philosophy Physical Therapy & Science

Broaden-and-build theory
The method focuses on positive emotions such as joy and interest which encourages  the exploratory nature of the work. Meeting the members and scientists from the network  as well as reading everyone's scientific interests provides inspiration for the development of new partnerships and scientific research.

The network serves as a system to be considered in which the members and the online platform spontaneously lead to new studies, partnerships and projects.
