Anxiety and Trauma During Troubled Times - a Chinese Medical Perspective

12 CEUs Approved

August 26th & 27th, 2023 (SAT & SUN)

Since the dawn of civilization, communities have endured wars, famine, catastrophes, and epidemics, while others have individually struggled with abuse (such as familial, spousal, or substance), illnesses, tragedies, and uncertainties -- all of which have resulted in anxieties, worries, and depression.


Concomitant with these communal and personal issues have been the role of the prevailing medical institutions and how they therapeutically accommodate and work these concerns. While Chinese medicine focuses on the person afflicted with these anxieties that can abruptly or gradually lead to traumas, it also addresses the implications of the precipitating events and circumstances that have resulted and manifested into these psychosocial afflictions.


Ranging from the understanding of the concepts of fate, destiny, and karma to thoughtful choices made by individuals and groups/tribes/communities that can provoke anxiety, the ensuing realizations or "solutions" are entrenched in changing consciousness.


Such approaches within Chinese medicine have differed depending on the specific traditions or the level of imbalance that the afflicted individual is operating from. This seminar will look at the long history of Chinese medicine and how they deal with the pertinent situations that inherently challenge all societies and their citizens to gain a deeper perspective in working with individuals during these troubled times.  


The role of Chinese medical modalities (herbs, acupuncture, stones, and essential oils) will be discussed so as to provide different clinical options that can best serve anxious beings.

** The California Acupuncture Board (CAB) approves AUCM's Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for its Continuing Education program. Although AUCM has not sought approval for CEUs from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), the NCCAOM recognizes and accepts CEUs that have been approved by the CAB. While the NCCAOM acknowledges CAB-approved CEUs, it is important to note that their policies on CEU acceptance may change. Therefore, it is the responsibility of participants to keep up-to-date on all NCCAOM policies regarding the acceptance of CAB CEUs.

4. By registering for the live stream, you acknowledge and agree to the terms outlined in this registration policy. Please note that it is always better to check with the certifying body or institution for their specific CEU requirements.


*** Please note that this and all other seminars given by AUCM are recorded. Methods used may include audio, video or still photography. Because audience members ask questions or participate as subjects in the seminars, and because recording may include audience members, AUCM requires that, as a precondition to signing up for any AUCM sponsored classes, all attendees consent, without restriction, to being recorded in whatever form recording is occurring by AUCM at the seminar. Attendees must further agree that all rights, including all intellectual property rights, to such recordings (and to all derivative works of such recordings in whatever form), shall belong exclusively to AUCM. Attendees will not be compensated in any way for providing the above permission or for releasing any rights to recordings; rather it is a precondition to attend the seminars.


**** For Livestream Participants: While we are taking reasonable precautions to keep the live stream video up and running (including redundant connections, computers, etc.) there is always a possibility of technical failure. In the event of a technical failure, any parts that are not streamed properly will be made available to the live stream participants as soon as we are able to get the recorded video uploaded to Vimeo within a months time. If they are small areas that are not demonstrations, we may upload audio only so we can get it up quickly. Due to the additional expenses we have in offering this, we are unable to offer any refunds based on technical problems. However those signed up as live stream participants will be able to view any missed video online. We do not have plans to offer this series for CEU"s online at the moment, therefore, live stream may be the only way to participate remotely in these classes.
