As neuroscience research and related clinical treatments evolve, we are learning that trauma is often at the root of psycho-physical health problems, patterns, and diseases. Acupuncturists are in a unique position to treat these dysregulated patterns because Chinese Medicine addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual problems faced by many people seeking care.

To date, Acupuncturists Without Borders has trained practitioners to primarily utlize ear acupuncture when addressing trauma-related patterns. This course will introduce the participant to a much more expansive clinical tool kit that includes other TCM and somatic therapies for prevention and treatment, enabling them to provide more effective trauma-informed care.

Topics covered include:

  • Trauma and Trauma Informed Care
  • Somatic Therapy and Trauma
  • Current Biomedical Trauma Treatments
  • Ear, Scalp, and Body Acupuncture Protocols
  • Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy
  • Physical-Energetic Exercises for Trauma Reduction
  • Touch Techniques for Trauma
  • Case Studies

Includes: Pre-recorded training videos, fillable PDF worksheet, reading materials (PDFs and weblinks), AWB and NCCAOM certificates upon completion with passing grade
