Holistic healthcare practitioners believe that all body components are intertwined and play a role in a person's well-being. By considering the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual aspects together, the therapist and client can work together to optimise function and improve overall health. Children develop all elements of well-being simultaneously. One facet of health affects another, so to determine the overall cause of a child's impairment, it is essential to examine the whole child.
This course aims to facilitate a holistic, integrated understanding of a child’s health and development, with reference to the brain, central nervous system and the mind-body connection.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
