Crisis intervention and complementary and alternative interventions (20 hours).
In recent years, complementary and alternative medicine has become more widely accepted by cultures all over the globe. In Asian cultures for example, traditional Eastern medicines such as Ayurveda and acupuncture are commonly practiced, while Native American healers use spirituality and herbs to treat patients. Homeopathic remedies are also widely used in Europe.
In spite of these cultural differences, the effectiveness of complementary and alternative approaches to health care is not well understood. This can cause confusion among potential users. Many governments don’t provide enough funding to further investigate these treatments, contributing to the general lack of understanding about their efficacy or safety.
It is evident that complementary and alternate health practices have become increasingly popular across cultures. However, more needs to be done in order for the public to understand their advantages so they can feel confident using them.
