The total price for this course is $65 with CEU/PDA.

The course is based on a video recording of the live webinar which took place June 19th, 2021. Those who attended the original webinar are already enrolled in the course and marked as passing the course. The NCCAOM Certificates were sent to attendees of the original webinar by email if they were present at the entire webinar. Those who registered for the course but could not attend are enrolled, but will need to watch the video content, fill out the NCCAOM worksheet and take the final quiz to get a certificate.

About The Class:

The Introduction to Healing Justice for Acupuncturists course is intended to provide a foundation for acupuncturists and acupuncture interns to serve their non-white patients better. This two hour long virtual workshop is a mini version of Jennifer’s full 16-week course that she will launch in the summer of 2021. Students and attendees will roleplay, reflect on audio, and video content, journal, self-assess, and define fundamental racial literacy terms. Attendees will leave the workshop with an in-depth examination of healing justice. Furthermore, they will have resources to cultivate racial literacy in their personal, social, and professional lives.

Students Will:

                1. Have the tools to engage with their BIPOC patients with compassion and understanding.
                2. Understand the influence of transgenerational trauma on body, mind, and spirit.
                3. Be able to use primary meridian and eight-extraordinary meridian treatments to lessen the burden of racial trauma, safely metabolize trauma within the body, and build resilience to future traumatic experiences.
                4. Become more racially literate.
