In this webinar, Professor Gumenick will present the components of a Classical Five-Element Acupuncture initial interview. Attendees will learn about the specific areas of inquiry that constitute a medical history, personal history, and systems review. Attendees will learn the skills of looking and questioning deeper than surface responses to glean the diagnostic information as to the underlying elemental imbalance (AKA Causative Factor), which is the key to Classical Five-Element treatment.
Attendees will learn how to question at a deeper level than simply obtaining information, and how to use questioning to elicit the elemental Causative Factor, or root cause of the patient’s imbalance.
Attendees will learn to reach and evaluate the state of a patient’s mental and spiritual levels.
Attendees will learn to listen with the whole of themselves – to more than just data, but to the needs of the patient who has the symptoms.
0 hrs - 1.5 hrs
The entire 90 minutes will be spent on the diagnostics of the initial examination, beginning with the first contact (by phone, upon arrival at the office), including suggestions as to the optimal arrangement of the seating and physical setup of the treatment room, through the entirety of the interview process, up to the insertion of the first needle.

I heartily recommend this course to my fellow practitioners. It helped me get into the ‘spirit’ of this fascinating theory.

Some 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.
We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top.
Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request.
If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
