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, this highly rated Harvard Medical School CME course, which sold out last year, provides you with evidence-based, comprehensive education to incorporate mind body medicine skills into your practice. It teaches:
• The latest data on stress, stress management, and resilience enhancement, and their impacts on patient health and treatment options
• The mind body approaches that form the foundation of modern self-care
• 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

For those who are new to mind body medicine, this program provides comprehensive education to begin using integrated models of care within your practice. For those who have experience in these methods, this program provides updates and workshops to take your skills to the next level.

All participants can customize their learning experience. The program offers 48 skills development sessions, focused presentations and interactive workshops. You can choose the ones that align with your specific goals and clinical interests.

This program is taught by leading practitioners and experts in the field of mind body medicine—including Dr. Helene Langevin, Dr. Charles Raison, and Mr. Dan Harris, who are all pioneers in the scientific and practical research of self-care interventions.
