Event description

Description

Discoveries in the basic sciences of biology, physics, and chemistry often take decades to overturn our thinking in the applied sciences of psychology, public health, and behavioral science. As a result, these discoveries seldom have an impact on our day-to-day lives. Sirare exceptions to this norm were recently uncovered in basic science labs. These findings are shaking up our notions of how to recover from trauma and illness in an effort to move toward optimal health and wellness. This talk with Integrative Health Studies Professor and Chair Meg Jordan examines six big ideas that have rocked the world of health care and should be essential tools for educators, therapists, teachers, coaches and anyone hoping to facilitate human flourishing. 

 

Meg Jordan, PhD, RN, CWP, is Department Chair of Integrative Health Studies and Somatic Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where her focus is preparing graduate students as catalysts for positive change in health care, wellness, and health promotion. Dr. Jordan is a clinical medical anthropologist, an award-winning international health journalist, behavioral medicine specialist, RN, author, and President of Global Medicine Enterprises, Inc.
