Beverly teaches Mind Body Approaches.

This course examines emerging theories and practical applications in the fields of subtle energy medicine, mind/body healing and behavioral medicine.  New evidence-based research methods and technologies for investigating the human biofield will be examined. Critical reviews of stress reduction practices such as meditation, Reiki, Qigong, yoga, biofeedback and support groups will explore how effective such practices are in changing personal lifestyle habits, increasing self-efficacy, improving health outcomes, and/or preventing chronic illness. The course offers experiential as well as didactic learning opportunities. Clinical application of the mind-body approach will be described including the process of delivering care.
