Advanced Seminar Program II Part 2 — Persistent Pain — 4.5 CEU's
Detailed Discussions on Practical Concerns in the Treatment Room
Each of the live sessions recorded for this course covers a few topics in detailed, thorough and patiently constructed discussions covering wide-ranging areas related to the practice of Chinese Medicine. At many American medical schools seminar learning has replaced lecture style formats. The seminar setting has proven to be a powerful forum for learning for our students as well. During each of the seminar sessions, the practitioners attending propose several diverse subjects and in engaging, interactive discussions, the many dimensions of the issue are surfaced, pulled apart and probed. Any and all questions are welcome and are thoroughly investigated.
Here's what some of the online students have said about this course:
I thought this program covered a range of very relevant medical issues. I found Jack’s ability to address issues from both Western and Eastern perspectives to be especially valuable, particularly as it relates to gaining the confidence of the patient, as well as other medical professionals.
I am also a teacher; I have trained acupuncturists, and for fifteen years I have run a school with a three year program in Medicinal Herbalism. I particularly liked that you nudged your students to pay much more attention to the treatments (mainstream) that their patients had been getting. Often TCM people aren't asking a lot of important questions that can let them know the seriousness of the pattern. Also, I liked that you encouraged them to pay attention to the style of reporting that their patients used, and the ways they could deduce things about their patients based upon other aspects of their life. The golfing riff was hysterical, but also very to the. I liked that you are getting others to think in constitutional terms – often a current condition is the culmination of a long series of things that may seem unconnected, but which are not if we look at them in terms of TCM. So I enjoyed very much listening to the thoughtful and multifaceted approach which you presented. I wanted to say this to you, because teachers often don't get very specific feedback about what people find useful. We all have to get CEU's, but it is a pleasure when I stumble across something of this caliber.
The most telling benefit that shows up for me in the treatment room is that my depth and efficacy of inquiry of the patient has improved. Although I never considered myself to be a poor diagnostician, I find that I am getting to the heart of the matter much more quickly. It’s almost like I can imagine Jack in the room with me, prompting me to get ever more detailed on the patient’s symptoms until I can see the pattern of disharmony with crystal clear precision. This approach also unfailingly makes the patient simultaneously appreciative of the comprehensive nature of their care and more insightful into their own issues.
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed listening to these recordings. I think this course, the Persistent Pain Seminar was very rich with clinical examples of how to address complicated conditions, which assists me to better understand the treatment principles. I enjoy hearing treatment strategies, such as the use of certain points. I also like hearing Jack's persistence with asking questions. It is a good reminder for me to really ask more detailed questions of my patients. Every time I listen to one of his courses, I come away inspired and feel like I'm much better prepared for my next treatment consultation. I wish I didn't live in Boston so I could go back to Maryland to sit in on one of Jack's courses.
