This is an introductory course looking at the concepts that govern the treatment of children according to Chinese medicine. It looks specifically at factors that affect a child's health prior to birth, psychological development in the first 7 years, human development according to cycles of 7 and 8 years, and the different ideas about children's physiology that makes them different from adults.
The ability to understand the essential nature of children is key to obtaining good results in their treatment. If we only apply the standard adult-specific diagnostic tools, we miss so much of what is possible in helping children to heal and grow to their maximum potential.
This video is a chance to learn what it is that makes children unique, and sets the stage for further study in this critical field.

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.
