An In-depth Exploration of Placebo Response
Understanding the mind and body’s natural ability to promote a healing response
Become a more effective healer, therapist or medical practitioner by learning how the evoke the placebo response for your clients or in your practice.
As of the end of November 2018, this three part pre-recorded video course will be exclusively available to Jung Platform.
The course focuses on the innate capacity of the human mind-body to naturally promote a healing response (a.k.a. the placebo response). This response is in part based on the capacity for the response to occur, but also cultivated – or in part inhibited – by early developmental events. The placebo response is one of the mechanisms that the body has aiming towards healing. The placebo response happens in the interaction between a caregiver and a patient, and can occur in the doctor’s office, between friends as well as in psychotherapy.
WHO WILL ENJOY THE COURSE
- This course is relevant for all mental health practitioners as well as anyone in the medical or healing professions.
