Workshop I.  The Promise of Integrative Healthcare 

Length: 1 – 4 hours

Abstract:  The face of illness has changed in the past century, and it is time for a fundamental transformation of health care.  Visions of the new health care come from holistic health approaches, psychoneuroimmunology, complementary and integrative medicine, and evidence-based mind-body medicine. Traditional medical systems from other cultures, such as Ayurvedic medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine also provide guidance for transforming Western health care, and the Western healing relationship.

This presentation will introduce the approach adopted in the Saybrook University College of Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences, highlighting the emphasis on self-care, the continuum of health and illness, healing within a group process, evidence-based therapies, integrative nutrition, and an integrative wellness coaching approach to life style and well-behavior changes. The program will close with several examples of integrative medicine research currently underway in the College of Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences.

Workshop II.  Integrative Pathways: Navigating Chronic Illness with a Mind-Body-Spirit Approach

Length:  1 -- 4 hours

Abstract:  This workshop provides a systematic, three-level framework for intervening with medically ill patients, based on the Pathways to Illness paradigm (McGrady & Moss, 2012) and the upcoming Integrative Pathways volume (McGrady & Moss, 2019). The paradigm emphasizes the integration of life style and behavioral changes into formal therapeutic interventions.  The Pathways Model illustrates the influence of genetics, environment, and life style choices on the etiology of mental and physical illnesses and on the course of normal health. Anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia and sleep disorders will serve as examples. The Pathways assessment identifies the patient’s pathway to illness.  The assessment identifies turning points and choices amenable to voluntary control and self-regulation oriented change strategies. 

Three levels of intervention are highlighted, beginning with self-care behaviors to re-establish normal biological rhythms, proceeding through the acquisition of self-regulation skills, to professional intervention. The workshop will emphasize both spiritual interventions and CAM therapies.   Proposed pathways to illness will be discussed for several exemplary cases, followed by the development of a treatment plan using the three level Pathways Model. For each of the disorders contained in the cases, the presenters will review life-style, risk behaviors, and psychophysiological patterns, relevant to the pathogenesis of disease, which can also serve in the restoration to health.

Workshop III.  What is Heart Rate Variability? What is its Medical and Psychological Significance? How Can We Optimally Train Positive HRV Changes?

Length:  4-8 hours

Abstract:  Heart rate variability (HRV) has been recognized as a medical index of health for three decades. Research shows that HRV is lowered by anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular illness, and many chronic medical conditions. Higher HRV is associated with youthfulness, aerobic fitness, and resilience. This workshop will review the physiology of HRV, and explain the HRV indices used in research.

This workshop also demonstrates biofeedback instrumentation and procedures to train increased heart rate variability. The workshop will emphasize the Lehrer-Vaschillo protocol for HRV biofeedback training, used as the basis for most research investigations showing improved HRV measures in study participants. This protocol can be supplemented with an understanding of respiratory physiology and an emphasis on breath training. 

The workshop will review outcome studies showing that HRV biofeedback can produce symptom reduction or functional improvement for the following disorders:  asthma, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, heart disease, hypertension, and post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as three sample applications for optimal performance. In addition, this workshop will include a case presentation integrating heart rate variability biofeedback into a multi-modality treatment approach including life style change and skills acquisition.
