Where: SEDONA, AZ
When: Wednesday, September 26, 2018 – Sunday, September 30, 2018
I am joining Dr. Leslie Korn, a health activist and behavioral therapist who uses nutrition and other interventions to support well-being, at this certificate program for mental health professionals who want to include nutritional and integrative medicine methods into their practice.
It’s sold out this year, but we are looking at expanding it internationally, possibly in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, next year.
Here’s how Leslie describes the offering. If you’re interested in knowing more or joining an interest list for the next one, contact me here.
Many clients are already self-prescribing based on information obtained on the Internet or their friends. While many of these clinical methods have few negative side effects, some herbal supplements, juice fasts and other apparently healthy activities can have significant adverse outcomes if not tailored to the individual’s psychobiology.
This training will provide state-of-the-art, clinical skills you need to help your clients safely navigate nutritional and integrative medicine.
You will also have opportunity to discuss cases, ask questions, develop new assessment skills and explore both metaphorical and scientific language that allows for effective communication with clients. Guest speakers who are leading voices in their respective disciplines, Judith Pentz, MD, and Dr. Mary Ann Osborn, Nurse Practitioner, will join us during the retreat to share their specific areas of expertise.
This content-rich retreat is organized with plenty of down time for rest, rejuvenation and relaxation in the pool or even for nourishing naps and massages. The Sedona Mago Retreat Center is in the magnificent desert landscape with labyrinths, walking paths, night skies and sunny days in which to rejuvenate while learning integrative clinical skills.
I look forward to seeing you in Sedona!
