Most patients require internal healing and transformation. To promote change at the source of their disharmony, we need to understand the internal causes of their disease – the emotions. Chinese medicine offers a profound framework for understanding life, well-being, illness and suffering. Looking at the 5-element model, we can explain the functions of the elements in relationship to the Shen and their interactions.
Depression can be from an imbalance in any of the 5-elements, and each element gives us a different lens from which to view treatment strategy. In this course, you will focus on the accurate diagnosis and treatment of depression and learn how to facilitate healing in safe and unique ways.

I liked the integrative approach, connecting the DSM-5 symptoms to symptoms in Chinese Medicine. The course helps to find the proper diagnosis and to choose correct acupuncture points for each type of depression. Thanks a lot!
