 Workshop Description:

Anxiety remains one of the most common mental health problems and has widespread personal and social consequences. Anxiety is also one of the main reasons people seek professional help. The therapeutic modalities most commonly used are designed to help people identify and correct dysfunctional thinking patterns, quiet dysregulated body reactions along with aiming to help resolve interpersonal and broader conflictual life issues. Mirroring broader societal openness to alternative practices, particularly those originating from Eastern healing practices, patients are now exploring remedies using methods drawn from energy psychology, yoga, meditation, and Tai Chi to name a few from among a growing list of energy and spiritually oriented practices.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to an approach to treating anxiety that is based on a foundation that is consistent with modern science, and Eastern spiritual practice, particularly Chinese Medicine. This approach honors but also extends current practice to address and remedy deeper causes of anxiety. Participants will be taught easy-to-learn Qigong (“Chee-Kung”) practices drawn from Chinese Medicine that they can use for self-healing and share with their patients. This workshop will help practitioners have a better understanding of therapies adapted from Eastern philosophy, gain confidence in using these integrative approaches, and broaden the range of approaches they can use to treat anxiety.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:

(1) Name two main differences in the way anxiety is understood between Western and Chinese Medicine based approaches to treating anxiety.

 Participants will be able to identify 2 principles from modern science (Quantum Physics) that are not fully implemented in Western Medicine that can have a profound impact on the conceptualization of anxiety treatment.

(2) Identify two principles from modern science (Quantum Physics) that are not fully implemented in Western Medicine that can have a profound impact on the conceptualization of anxiety treatment.

(3) Learn two Qigong techniques that they can both use for their own self-care and also teach to patients to address deeper causes of anxiety.
