Dr. Thornton will encourage you to re‐define who you are and what you do to bring health and healing into the world.By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Explain the importance of re‐defining who we are in creating a new paradigm for health and healing.
- Identify three principles that unite integrative health professionals in collaborative practice.
- Identify two barriers that prevent integrative health practitioners from developing collaborative relationships and coordinating care.
