New American OT Association Class on Complementary and Integrative Health

I am so grateful to have just completed creating the new course for the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), “OT with Complementary Health Approaches and Integrative Health.” If you are an occupational therapist interested in Integrative Medicine you will enjoy this course!

It took me six months, in between teaching and client sessions, to create this webinar that will be available on their website as a downloadable class for the next five years. I had a wonderful experience working closely with their education director. I hope you enjoy it!
