This course is experiential and interactive in format, providing an opportunity for students to be challenged by first recognizing, then developing competency in their personal strengths and professional limitations in responding to emotional and psychological phenomena that are likely to be encountered in their practice as a TCM practitioner. Students are exposed to a range of psychological and philosophical theories and practices (both Eastern and Western) so that they may develop an understanding of the broad range and scope of psychotherapy. Students will learn to better manage patients suffering from mental emotional conditions as well as being a more grounded and rooted practitioner when handling difficult conditions.
