This one hour free webinar will provide you with an understanding of how and why children and adolescents develop mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Chinese medicine provides a radically different lens to conventional, psychological theories. Using both 5 Element and Organ/Pathogen differentiations, you will go away with an intuitive, effective and profound model through which to approach the growing number of mental issues in children.
Rebecca Avern is a senior lecturer, clinical supervisor and teaching clinic director at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, UK. In 2012, she founded an acupuncture centre for the treatment of children in Oxford – the Panda Clinic - and her clinical work is now entirely with children. She teaches paediatrics online and at undergraduate and post-graduate level.

Nutrition is within the scope of practice of California acupuncturists but in our schools we are not trained to use individual amino acids and a pro-recovery diet to quickly stop cravings for drugs, behaviors, and food. Yet, decades of research and empirical evidence support these quick and efficient treatment modalities. Meanwhile, during COVID-19, citizens isolated and quarantined are eating and drinking like never before. Sales of alcohol have increased 55% this year compared to last year at this time and the Mayo Clinic calls the result of our new compulsive eating habits "the quarantine 15". This presentation reminds participants that their patients may not list overeating or over drinking or over drugging on the intake form but a great number of them ARE in the throes of addiction. Food addiction, alone, is the most dangerous and most common addiction in the United States, causing obesity and diabetes at epic levels in younger and younger individuals. On top of that anxiety and depression are epidemic and most commonly treated with pharmaceuticals such as SSRIs, SNRIs, and highly addictive benzodiazepines. Yet we as acupuncturists have at our fingertips not only excellent acupuncture points as a response, but also useful nutritional tools in amino acids and menu choices. I will detail each of the five amino acids that are useful to respond to patient needs, with results apparent within fifteen minutes, and offer the simple questionnaire that helps the practitioner figure out what the patient's most pressing needs are at that time. The same questionnaire helps both patient and practitioner figure out what dose is needed and when the supplements can be stopped.
Carolyn began using acupuncture for addiction treatment in substance abuse treatment programs in 1992 in Sacramento, CA. Carolyn has lectured at state and national conferences, written magazine articles and is the founding director of the Alliance for Addiction Solutions.

This recorded webinar presents an in-depth use of Heart-9 with clinical cases. Cases demonstrating dramatic changes when using this point will be covered; conditions such as persistent migraines, depression, allergies, memory loss, etc., can all be affected when Ht-9 is applied correctly. This recorded webinar will discuss how it is helpful to understand the whole concept and usage of the ‘Jing well-point,’ as it leads to a better understanding of the relationship of the heart and Shen. This in-depth understanding will expand the learners’ clinical abilities when one is working on mind-body-spirit transformation using acupuncture. This informative recorded webinar presents the special use of this single, but very important, point.
