Psychosis is the label we generally use to describe an extreme state of consciousness. The idea that it is a disease is not only questionable but can lead to detrimental therapies. The symptoms of psychosis may in fact be the system's natural way of coping with overwhelming stress. That needs to be respected as a natural process of healing via the body-mind's intelligence.
This course is a follow-up to the brief FREE course IMHU offers called "Psychosis:What is it?". We recommend you take that first to give you more context.
This course takes about 1 hr and 45 min to complete. 1.5 CEs available for licensed healthcare providers. See below.
Your Take Home:
A new, more humane, way of managing the extreme states that are natural and enhance connection with community as well as the body. These can be so effective they replace pharmaceuticals. You will be better able to:
Know the poor outcomes for those using anti-psychotics over the long-term.
Discuss the life experience of someone who experienced psychosis, overcame the symptoms, and is now a leading psychologist helping others who hear voices.
Update your way of perceiving what we have called "symptoms of psychosis" to better support people in extreme states.
Cogently refer to professionals who know about the importance and promise of nutrition and micro-nutrients in creating balance for those in extreme states.
Transform your opinion of what kind of care is needed for those in extreme states.
Understand the obsolete laws applying to the conventional care of those in extreme states.
The Vids We Share Save Time for You:
We have some unique vids made for this course. Other videos were curated, ie, thoughtfully selected by mental health professionals from the public domain--after considerable research to make it easier for you to form a cogent picture around managing extreme states.
You will meet seasoned healthcare providers who share perspectives gained from decades of experience successfully helping patients overcome the imbalances of extreme states.
Our selections and organization of the materials can replace the need for you to get mired in a hunt through the jungle of the web--which is typically dominated by the perspectives of those who want to sell pharmaceuticals.
