Psychology Today (1994) and the National Center for Alternative and Complimentary Medicine (1998) both predicted the integration of mental and physical health services as the “healthcare of the future” that promotes a holistic biopsychosocial perspective of wellness by integrating complementary and alternative treatments with conventional approaches. Although gaining momentum in society, many mental health clinicians are lagging behind other professions in knowledge and skills for integrating complementary and alternative treatments into their practice.
Using the four-stage model of the Integration Continuum in Counseling (Suprina, 2003), this course will present theoretical constructs and techniques based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda Medicine, the Creative Arts and other approaches for integration of CAT in treatment of clients who have experienced trauma. Along with some practical techniques that can be used immediately, participants will also receive additional resources for further study.
OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this course participants will be better able to:
- Differentiate between different types of complementary and alternative treatments (CAT) and identify potential benefits.
- Understand the considerations for ethical integration of CAT with trauma clients.
- Build knowledge of the theories, systems and constructs upon which CAT are founded.
- Apply various complementary and alternative treatments with trauma clients.
- Make appropriate referrals to CAT practitioners.
- Access additional resources and research for additional training on specific areas of CAT
