This course is designed for students in the helping professions as an overview of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Course content includes trends in CAM use; theoretical foundations for practice; historical, cultural and religious contexts of healing; legal and ethical issues; and scientific research on selected methods. Students will specifically learn therapeutic touch (TT), an energy based CAM, as developed by Dr. Dolores Krieger and Dora Kunz. Students will examine the implications for the use of self as a healing instrument and explore dimensions of the healing relationship. Each class will include lecture, discussion, meditation and TT practice components. Elective. Open to non-nursing majors. (3 hours per week for 15 weeks).
