Courses / Treating Children, Level 1: Foundations
What is Net of Knowledge?

SERIES OVERVIEW

If you ever felt you had a calling for working with children but did not know how to get started, this course is for you. International Pediatric Acupuncture expert Dr Julian Scott lays the groundwork for everything you need to know to treat babies and children with acupuncture, dietary advice and TCM techniques like tuina, moxibustion and laser therapy. With developing digestive systems and the transition from milk to food many infants suffer from digestive (earth element) disorders which lead to problems later in childhood. Gain confidence by learning a diagnostic framework and effective treatments for common disorders and expand your acupuncture practice to include families.

Title: Module 1: Paediatric Assessment and Digestion

Approved: NCCAOM, Florida, Standard Certificate
Length: 4 Hrs

COURSE OVERVIEW

This module is the first of a series that provides you with the essential tools to expand your acupuncture practice to include treating babies and children. The first lesson will cover the two basic types of child; Shi - exuberant children with plenty of energy and Xu - those who don’t have quite enough. This provides the foundations for understanding what illnesses a child may be predisposed to. Secondly, because good digestion is essential for healthy development of babies and children, "Accumulation Disorder" (congestion and overloading of the digestive system) will be addressed with reference to Spleen Qi deficiency. This module is a perquisite to all other modules which addresses specific health conditions.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the role of digestion in the healthy development of babies and children.

COURSE OVERVIEW

This module is the third in a five-part series that provides you with the essential tools to expand your acupuncture practice to include treating babies and children. Digestive health is the foundation of childhood development and constipation is common, either as a presenting complaint or as an additional symptom to another illness. Often just regulating the bowels can be enough to clear conditions such as abdominal pain, insomnia, eczema, asthma etc. This module also covers aspects of diet that are most relevant in the treatment of children, based on traditional Chinese principles. In addition, in this module we discuss chronic diarrhoea, the most common form in the clinic, and how to treat it with acupuncture and with dietary advice.

DISCLAIMERS

*CEU/CPD ApprovalsSome accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". 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. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.
