Holistic Health & Healing Summer Institute
for Integrative Clinical Care

June 10-14, 2013
Minneapolis, MN


The Holistic Health & Healing Summer Institute gives participants broad exposure to the application of integrative health and healing to patients and families in a variety of clinical and community settings. As hospitals and other clinical settings begin to offer more holistic approaches to care, questions can arise regarding the role of providers, the processes of care, the physical environment, and organization culture. This program is meant to immerse participants in theories and practices offering tools and information that you can readily apply in your own setting.  Through didactic, online, and experiential learning, participants will acquire the knowledge of evidence based research and skills to care for patients and provide leadership to create optimal healing environments.

Ideal for nursing and other healthcare professionals wanting to bring holistic health and healing practices to their organizations.

Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to:
  • Compare and contrast the history, philosophy, principles and practices of holistic health and healing with conventional approaches to healthcare.
  • Develop a personal plan for health and well-being that incorporates holistic practices.
  • Examine the evidence base underlying complementary therapies and cultural-based healing practices.
  • Develop holistic practice guidelines and standards that can be applied to the care of clients in a variety of clinical settings.
  • Describe characteristics of optimal healing environments.
