ADPS 1203 Psychology of Health and Healing (Fall: 4 )

Course Description

Today’s health care increasingly interfaces with an emerging trend in alternative/complementary/integrative approaches to health and healing. As the role of mind-body interaction is studied and the impact of mind, awareness, consciousness and intention is better understood, we discover more options for health, healing and recovery. Students will explore the concepts and research underlying integrative medicine: mind-body influences; traditional and ethno medicine; diet and nutrition; structural, energetic therapies and bio-electromagnetic applications. Focus on skills to evaluate research supportive and challenging to these concepts.
