Mar 29, 2019 11:00am ‐ Mar 29, 2019 12:00pm

Description

Integrative health care was predicted as the “healthcare of the future” (Psychology Today, 1994). Using Suprina’s (2003) four-stage model of the integration continuum in counseling, this roundtable will discuss strategies for ethical and culturally sensitive integration of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practices within counseling. Come explore research and skills for integrating acupressure, chakra balancing, meditation, tai chi, massage, and others into client treatment and self-care.

  • Participants will learn the difference between eastern and western approaches to wellness.
  • Participants will gain knowledge and skills related to ethically integrating CAM into their counseling practice whether it is initiated by the client or counselor.
  • Participants will learn how to adapt CAM practice to be multiculturally sensitive and promote engagement.

Speaker(s):

  • Joffrey S. Suprina, PhD, Dean of College of Counseling, Psychology and Social Sciences, Argosy University
