Overview / Abstract:
COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT FOR AN INTEGRATED MODEL OF CARE
Mind body approaches such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, cognitive skills, lifestyle interventions and positive psychology now boast an impressive evidence base to support their ability to improve—and in some cases, prevent—stress-related illnesses, ranging from asthma to hypertension, functional bowel diseases and pain syndromes.
Whether you are a physician, nurse, psychologist, social worker or therapist, mind body techniques provide you with evidence-based ways to enhance patient care and clinical outcomes.
The Herbert Benson, MD Course in Mind Body Medicine is a comprehensive education program where you learn how to incorporate these skills into your practice. It teaches:

• When, where and how you can employ mind body approaches to enhance patient care
• Practical skills to guide your patients in the use of self-care techniques
In addition to clinical approaches and integrative models of care, this program provides:
• Education on genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and how to leverage recent advances in the neuroimaging of contemplative states
• Opportunities for certification
