strategies for multi-disciplinary collaboration among physicians, nurses, and
mental health professionals to form an effective health care team.
Minding the Pain
Applying the Principles of Mind-body Medicine in Pain
This seminar focuses on the latest in mind-body therapies for
pain relief, including progressive relaxation, meditation, hypnosis,
neurolinguistic programming, and psychotherapy. We explore and identify the role
of the mind in creating and experiencing pain according to the latest research
in mind-body medicine.
Medical Ethics of Caring
to Best Use Your Training and Background in Deciding to do the Right Thing
As a 21st
century health care professional, some of your most challenging questions are
not medical, but philosophical. For example, how do you allocate finite
resources when human life is considered infinitely valuable? Unfortunately,
there is no rule book that can make these decisions for you, but the
responsibility is still in your hands.
Ethically, the practice of medicine at
the end of life is unique. In this seminar, you will learn how to work with as
clear a conscience as possible in a situation where many of the standard rules
and practices simply don’t apply.
The skyrocketing costs of hi-tech health care have rendered
group health insurance one of the most expensive — and one of the most sought
after — benefits that employers can provide to their employees. Yet the power
of mind to cure or reduce occupational health health problems remains largely
untapped. In this seminar you will what you can realistically expect — and not
expect — from the power of the mind to heal, based on hard evidence and sound,
scientific principles. You will also learn the simple, inexpensive therapeutic
techniques that are often all you need to avoid costly surgical operations or to
shorten expensive hospital stays.

Religion and Spirituality in Healthcare
The relationship between health and religion or spirituality as been known from
antiquity, a fact that modern science has only recently verified. Based on this
recent research you will learn the basic principles of how to mobilize the
patient's spiritual and religious beliefs to promote optimal health and quality
really want to understand both the power of the mind to affect health and its
limitations, then this is the seminar for you. You've read the books, attended some of the church services, and maybe even
taken some seminars on the power of thought to heal. Or maybe you're a skeptic,
who has just heard enough about the "miracle" of mind over matter in
medicine to begin to take an interest. Either way, you're ready to begin sorting
out the truth about it from amidst both the hype and the skepticism.
