CAIM: Complementary, Alternative, and Integrative Medicine
School of Professional Psychology and Health IHL 6084 2.00
This collaborative-learning course offers a unique opportunity to interview working practitioners from complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine modalities. Students then put together a model clinic or holistic center that addresses chronic health challenges for diverse populations within integrative settings. An overview of CAIM modalities and explorations of theoretical frameworks will accompany a study of the emerging scientific evidence for integrative health and medicine. Class materials and discussions include how modalities are evaluated for their validity, safety and effectiveness; scope of practice; licensure and credentialing; educational preparation; lineages of thought; and epistemologies.
