Senior Mental Disorders in TCM

(7 CEUs – Category 1 – California Acupuncture Board Approved)

Instructor: Joseph (Chang-Qing) Yang LAc

Sunday July 20, 2014 - 9:00AM - 5:00PM

Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine

1807 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 200, Santa Monica, CA 90403
In TCM there has been a tradition in the prevention and treatment of mental disorders in seniors for a very long time. During the aging process, TCM doctors have made suggestions to improve the lifestyle and to perform certain exercises to maintain the body function, plus herbs and acupuncture treatment to deal with many clinical disorders. For seniors, not just the physical weakness needs support, but also the mental loneliness as well. In TCM, the shen conservation is the key method to deal with this issue, including all the personal lifestyle advice, such as sleep, diet, exercise, these all are relying on the seasonal, daily natural cycle changes. Meanwhile, the activities, interests, communications and mental self-exercise are needed to be given to these patients. The traditional special techniques and clinical treatment plans are very useful and effective and as TCM practitioners we have to follow the TCM principle to deal with shen and body the two aspects of seniors.
Chang-Qing (Joseph) Yang, 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.
