NURS 656 Traditional Healing Systems 3.0 Credits
This course provides a survey of ancient and contemporary Traditional Healing Systems that form the foundation of health care around the world. Without exception, these systems feature a holistic approach to diagnosis and healing, the mind-body-spirit connection, and the importance of community and environment for health and well-being. We explore Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and African Medicine, as well as Unami, Native North American healing and Latin American Curanderismo, to better understand the roots of medical practices in the U. S. and around the globe, and to expand our respect for culture and diversity in modern health care.
