SOCW - 8225 Complimentary Alternative, and Indigenous Healing Practices (3)


This course provides extensive exposure to complementary, alternative, and indigenous healing practices that are found in the United States. Healing practices are tied to one’s cultural and belief systems. Knowledge of such practices has a direct application for social workers’ cultural competence and skill integration with a wide range of clients. Specific practices include energy-based systems (acupuncture, reiki), spirit-based systems (curanderismo, faith-healing) and body-based systems (homeopathy, massage). Prerequisite: Completion of foundation curriculum or admission to advanced standing.
