Healthcare Professionals have an ethical responsibility to act with integrity, honesty and professionalism with their clients and with other healthcare team members. Medical programs regularly incorporate a
“MEPS” (mental/emotional/physical/spiritual) approach to care in training, notes and literature, but often, emotional health is not regularly managed for the provider or the recipients of healthcare in most settings. This means that 25% of the care that most medical professionals believe is critical to health is being avoided. This is why psychologists and psychiatrists are often seen as far from the “medical system” yet emotional health is recognized as very important. Doctors, Nurses, Allied Health Care Professionals, Mental Health workers and the entire health care team needs to respect the tending of emotions as a key feature for basic healthcare in all fields. This course brings a focused attention to communication styles, emotional intelligence, and the value of understanding and managing painful emotions in any personal or healthcare setting. From this understanding, the transformation of unhealthy emotions into joyful experiences can be achieved.
In this course, students will learn how to be sensitive to both their own emotions as well as the emotions of those around them for compassionate communication. Through such communication, bridges may be created between health care professionals and clients too in order to deliver the best possible healthcare.
Students will learn how to be aware of their own conscious (or most often unconscious) patterns of behaviour which often involves REACTING to others, rather than RESPONDING to them. Unconscious biases play a huge role in referrals, communication with other healthcare professionals, and even in the care provided to a client/patient seeing any other healthcare practitioner(s). When healthcare practitioners work to overcome their own biases and consciously-avoid patterned behaviours that stem from an ego-centred perspective, true compassion for clients and the healthcare team may be established. This results in best care for clients served. Recognizing one's own patterns improves both the experience and the outcome for the patient and the entire healthcare team.
This course allows any student (within healthcare or not) to learn, recognize, and mindfully apply the skills and tools that can improve mood, increase compassion, and positively effect health outcomes in both personal and professional settings.
Who this course is for:
- Healthcare Professionals (Doctors, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Healers and Coaches), as well as anyone interested in improving interpersonal relationships with family, friends, and coworkers.
Hello! In a nutshell, I am a Grief Recovery, Brain Re-Training, Spiritual Guide focused on Conscious healing of the mind, body and soul. I love people, nature, writing poetry, reading, and teaching people how to be the best of themselves.
My latest "I" Sight Course is specifically about learning one of the ways we can understand Higher Consciousness - which flows to us and through us. For me today, It is flowing through my online and/or personal training for clients, and through poetry writing that is coming from an inspired space of both wisdom and playfulness. Two new books have just been published last month (November 2021) - contact me for details if you're interested.
The longer (far from nutshell) version: I started my career with Bachelor of Science Degree Specializing in Neuropsychology at the University of Alberta, then proceeded to McMaster University to study Health Sciences. I was involved with several research projects while I was at McMaster and focused most on chronic health concerns and caregiver stress. I then studied Naturopathic Medicine in a 4-year program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, followed by a 2-year residency program in which I focused on Eastern Medicine. I have taught various courses from Anatomy and Physiology, Gynaecology, Minor Surgery, and Eastern Medicine and Acupuncture. I am also a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and have worked with many people - friends, family, and patients with this process to help process the grief that can come from the numerous sources of losses in all of our lives.
I was one of the co-founders of the Canadian Integrative Cancer Centre in Ontario, Canada and I am continuing to focus my care in this area and chronic illness in general.
I have always felt that best health combines a foundation of good nutrition and blends this with optimism, intention and belief in the body/mind/soul for long term success in health goals. Did I mention that I am also a Certified Mindfulness Practitioner (Certified in Level 1,2, 3, and Master's Levels). My Cancer Healing Foods course on Udemy is intended to help build/inspire this foundation for viewers and those in need. The guidance for mindfulness, optimism, and mind-retraining will come in future courses.
The purely fun-side: I am a nature and animal-lover due largely to the inspiration and influence of my first and only dog - a Miniature Schnauzer - Caesar Augustus von Schnauzer - who helped me create a mini-schnauzer dog-blog (Schnauzer Savvy on WordPress); and a YouTube channel (Dogtor Caesar) based on my desire to share what he has helped me learn about this breed's needs and capabilities! Also the inspiration for my Pet Loss course here on Udemy. He continues to be the background joy in each love-filled step I take.
The greatest joys in my life are the countless blessings I receive from my patients/clients, my dearest friends, my loving family, and my dog (even from far) every single day.
