This series will elevate your clinical practice to address your patients care from a complementary and integrative health perspective. Research has continued to grow and demonstrate the efficacy of alternative health practices. This course will facilitate your progression of implementing holistic treatment of the whole individual into your hand and upper extremity practice. You can view each segment as individual courses but the 4 parts together are recommended for a preferred understanding of the concepts and practices introduced. Part 1: Introduction to the holistic approach to upper extremity rehabilitation and the use of meditation/mindfulness in OT practice


Participants will identify evidence-based complementary health methods within occupational therapy scope of practice as they relate to the rehabilitation of individuals with upper extremity pathology.
Participants will, through active learning exercises, execute complementary health methods on themselves in order to integrate and critique specific reviewed techniques.
