Ethics from the Chinese Medical Classics

Course Overview

The Ethics lecture on the “Patient-Practitioner Relationship from the Chinese Medical Classics” is perhaps considered one of the best talks on Chinese Medicine. It was first presented in 1990 at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute, Maryland, presented by Father Claude Larre and Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée. The subject of this lecture has now been included within the body of CTA’s Masters degree, as well as being offered annually to new generations of practitioners. As our profession evolves with the changing landscape of healthcare, this area of study and expertise remains a treasure house of clinical efficacy and healing potential. This course covers the components outlined in this lecture.
