A new hospital department of Integrative Medicine can be vulnerable to becoming siloed and separate from general patient care.
The genius of the Connor Integrative Network (CIHN) at University Hospitals of Cleveland is that, as a network, it can be everywhere, seamlessly woven into the fabric of everyday patient and employee care.
Champions of Whole Health Care are either recruited from specialties at the hospital or are hired outright. They are first-rate providers, chosen for their expertise, skill, commitment, and compassion.
Well, it’s here and ready for release to the general public - Maurine Killough’s terrific new Guided Imagery for Embracing a New Medicine!
Maurine is a Certified Guided Imagery Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotist working with clients in the San Francisco Bay Area.
She weaves imagery techniques with hypnosis and other approaches, to help people overcome challenges like stress, trauma, performance anxiety, and self-esteem issues. She also leads weekly meditation groups.
Master hypnotherapist, guided imagery pioneer, math and physics nerd, player of multiple musical instruments, super-athlete, and all-round polymath, Emmett Miller MD, is a man of many parts. A lot of these parts don’t normally coexist within one person.
He’s a guy who grew up in the heart of Bed-Stuy in the 50’s (the Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, known for its rich African American culture, but also for gangs, race riots, and poverty), but he was sent to an all-white high school in Queens for the education. As a result, he got to understand two different universes.
I just finished Jim Gordon’s new book, The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing after Trauma, and I liked it so much, I want to tell you about it.
It’s filled with what I value most: clear, practical, doable, and universal healing tools for survivors of traumatic events. His descriptions and instructions are so simple and cogent, readers can replicate them, whether they’re trauma survivors themselves or clinicians working with survivors, or, as is so often the case, both.
