Doctors, therapists and other care & cure advisors see huge potential for improvement in health consulting, treatment and the way they perform, but it’s not so easy to see how to go about it in an effective way. Recurring self-education has of course become the standard, thereby expanding one’s scope, but nobody wants to be labeled a quack. So how can this self-education be done effectively? The current medical curricula for doctors, therapists, specialists and other cure & care practitioners have difficulty keeping up with the ever more-often expressed desire to apply a broader perspective on diagnosing symptoms, treatment and coaching. Practitioners need a solid and innovative curriculum that offers a validated way to learn to apply an integral view on illness and a joint exploration of the path back to total health; back to the experience of wholeness. They need a course that teaches them to maintain a solid balance between the longing for health within the patient on the one hand, and the reliable expertise of the practitioner on the other hand. They need a course that teaches Holistic Health Mastery. This course inspires health practitioners who want to apply positive health in a holistic way. This is the proposition of the Holistic Health Mastery course.
“Holistic Health Mastery” is a lite micro course at Ubiquity University. It is composed of five modules. Each module takes a week. Undergraduates are expected to invest 3 to 4 hours on a module; graduate students are expected to spend 6 to 7 hours on a module.
At the end of this lite microcourse, you should be able to:
- Explain what holistic health mastery concepts can convey to the practitioner;
- Explainn how the various areas of health can interact with each other;
- Describe how to enrich the client – practitioner relationship in exploring the road to health;
- Apply the new concepts in existing healthcare practitioner environments.
At the end, you should be able to articulate your opinion on the value of a holistic approach to health mastery, supported by plausible arguments.
