Abstract (Peggy Hough):
Many people seek support due to symptoms resulting from Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, Abuse, Unexplained Physical Pain, Trauma, Family of Origin issues, and/or Relationship problems. It is imperative to understand that Body, Mind and Spirit are impacted by these symptoms. We must attend to each in order to facilitate genuine, sustainable healing.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the presentation participants will be able to:

1)    Identify the Body, Mind & Spirit triad in Complimentary Medicine and understand the significance of the triad in treating addictive behaviors.
2)    Discuss the relationship between unresolved trauma and addiction as a coping mechanism.
3)    Identify the organ-emotion link in Chinese Medicine.

Abstract (Margot Chambers):
An experiential and interactive workshop on Traditional Chinese Medicine and recovery.   The workshop will cover the connection between the Body, Mind and Spirit and how it is treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine, in relation to the treatment of mood disorders and trauma. The workshop will also explore  the connection and comparison of somatic healing and Traditional Chinese Medicine in trauma and addiction.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the presentation participants will be able to:

1)    Define and develop an understanding of the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the treatment of addiction and how it can complement traditional approaches.
2)    Explain how Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the connection between the Body, Mind and Spirit.
3)    Demonstrate the applicable knowledge on the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine as a systematic medicine.
4)    Identify local qualified resources to compliment current practices.
