Perinatal Mental Disorder in TCM
(7 CEUs – Category 1 – CAB Approved)
PInstructor: Joseph (Chang-Qing) Yang LAc

The nature, prevalence and determinants of mental health problems in women during pregnancy and in the year after giving birth have been thoroughly investigated in high-income countries. Systematic reviews have shown that in these settings, about 10% of pregnant women and 13% of those who have given birth experience some type of mental disorder, most commonly depression or anxiety. Social, psychological and biological etiological factors interact, but their relative importance is debated.

From the course discussion, we will look at the shen evaluation procedure and the treatment planning and treatment details. Understanding the female energy patterns and shen activities are directly related in the clinic treatment and the results. The course will give TCM practitioners the confidence to deal with the patients and deliver the effective treatment as well.

Chang-Qing (Joseph) Yang, Ph.D, LAc, received his 5-year bachelor’s degree and 3-year master degree in TCM from the TCM University of Heilongjiang, Harbin, China in 1984. Since then, he was a faculty and clinician of the university, specializing in liver disease and mental disorder. He earned his master’s degree from the same university in 1987, majoring in pattern and human constitution. In 1991, he became a psychiatry trainee at the Aichi Medical University in Aichi, Japan and received his PhD degree in Psychiatry and Neurology from the Kobe University in Kobe, Japan. He is presently a clinic supervisor and faculty member at the Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, CA.

The Eight Extraordinary Channels are one of the most important channels in the acupuncture channel system. These channels are the bridge between prenatal and postnatal influences in our lives. The Eight Extraordinary channels influence Jing, (essence) and source Qi, and can be used to support all the channel systems.

The Eight Extraordinary Channels can assist in treating deep, chronic and old patterns that influence the three treasures of our life: the physical, emotional and spiritual. These channels can release one from emotional and spiritual imbalances and realign one to the yuan shen (original spirit).

In this workshop, David will introduce each of the Eight Extraordinary channels with an emphasis on their psycho-emotional and spiritual qualities. The focus of this workshop is clinical applications. David will present a framework to develop customized treatments for each patient. This is the essence of Chinese medicine.

Dr. David Twicken, DOM, L.Ac. A faculty member at Emperors College since 1994, David has taught acupuncture courses, Philosophy of Oriental Medicine, Tai Chi Chuan, Medical Qi Gong, Feng Shui, I Ching, Chinese Astrology, Medical History, The Eight Extraordinary Channels, and is a clinical supervisor.
