About

This Introduction to Integrative Therapies and Healing Practices offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Minnesota provides a framework for incorporating integrative therapies into your work with clients or patients.  

By the end of the course, you will be able to assess if integrative therapies are good options in specific situations, as well as educate patients and colleagues about benefits and risks.  

You will be confident discussing the evidence base for integrative therapies in general, with an understanding of some of the challenges of research in this area, and able to identify reliable sources of evidence-based information. You will leave with the skills to  partner with patients or clients around use of  these therapies and a plan to introduce integrative therapies in your work or other setting.
