This series is still ongoing, and since courses are still being added, it is not for sale as a package yet. You can still buy the current courses individually at this time.

SERIES OVERVIEW

Today, psychological issues constitute a major part of our patient complaints.

In Classical Chinese medicine, the psyche and the emotions are considered the roots of all diseases.

The ancient traditions have emphasized the impact of mind-sets and emotions on the body. Furthermore, in classical acupuncture, many points have been described as having specific psychological effects. In spite of these facts, the psyche of the patient seems to have been greatly overlooked in many of the modern TCM practices.

This series aims to provide the necessary understanding and appropriate tools for dealing with the hidden dimensions of disease, and to help re-integrate psychology into the TCM practice, and to help go deeper in seeking the roots of our patient's complaints.

The proposed treatment strategies combine classical Chinese medical concepts and acupuncture with specific Qigong exercises as well as some modern cognitive therapy work.

CEUS/PDAs: 4.75
Approved: Standard Certificate, NCCAOM (4.5)
Length: 4.75 Hrs

COURSE OVERVIEW

The human basic “Constitution” is transmitted by the parental essences (Jing). In the pre-natal stage, the constitution will influence the preferential development of specific organ systems, thus defining the physiology and the morphology of the person. Additionally, the constitution (Jing & Zong Qi) will predispose the development of a specific "Temperament". Together with post-natal conditioning and personal life experiences the constitution and the temperament are responsible for the formation of individual belief systems and the psycho-emotional expressions of a person. The basic belief mechanisms and habitual mind-sets will further define how the outer world is perceived and will influence the physiology as well as the pathology of a person.

Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section.
