Approaches to Healing is a guest lecture series designed to help students explore the theory and practice of the many types of healing arts that our regional wealth of outstanding practitioners provide.  Throughout the quarter, students will be asked to look at broad health care questions and policy, as well as personal healing practices, stress management, and the importance of thoughtful critical analysis at all levels of approaches and outcomes.  Guest speakers representing body work, complementary medicine, Chinese medicine, bacteriophages as antibiotics, and plant medicine will be featured.  Students will also spend time each week outside of class exploring new activities that could contribute to their own health, as well as reading current literature to help expand their understanding of health and wellness.

This course meets in conjunction with the program The Medicalization of America .  (You may enroll either in The Medicalization of America for 8 credits or Approaches to Healing for 2 credits, but you may not enroll in both.)
