On May 30th of 2019, Dr Jonathan M. Fields AP, DOM was invited to Barry University in Miami Shores, FL to teach an introduction to Trauma class to Mental Health Counselors. The class was held in the Powers building in the Barry University School of Social Work. The 90 minute class consisted of an introduction to the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, diagnostics, five elements, mindfulness meditation, abdominal breathing, progressive relaxation, hypnosis, taoist internal alchemy, physiology of acupuncture, qi gong exercises, auricular acupuncture and more. The acupuncture and Chinese lecture also included a question and answer session with the students.
The Dean of the school of social work came by to sit in on the class for a while. She was so impressed and pleased with the material and the presentation, that she asked miami acupuncturist, Dr Fields to come back and teach classes regularly. The details are currently being worked out, but it looks like in the future, it may be Professor Fields.
The tone of class was very receptive and the students and future counselors were excited and well engaged in the presentation. Everyone was taught at least 2-3 techniques to take out into the real world of clinical practice that can be applied to help towards patients who are either manic or depressive.
Dr. Fields has a lot of experience dealing with Trauma in the clinic and has been instrumental in the community working with students and survivors of the Parkland incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas.
