Acupuncturists who treat adult outpatients generally rely on a set of assumptions about our patients that make us equal partners in a business transaction, exchanging our expertise for their money. We assume they are hiring us on their own initiative because they want to, can stop if they change their minds, can recognize and articulate their own likes and dislikes, and can evaluate and reject anything we tell them that doesn’t fit with their values or preferences.

Objectives 

Students taking this class will learn to:

  • Understand which patients should be considered physically, cognitively or socially vulnerable, and what measures are appropriate to take in response.
  • Recognize and manage emotional vulnerabilities such as transference, countertransference and magical thinking.
  • Efficiently solicit and monitor verbal and nonverbal ‘assent’ at each step of treatment planning and execution
  • Manage discussions with patients and doctors regarding ‘placebo effect’ in a positive manner that builds respect and collegial relations

Outline

  • Physical and cognitive vulnerability
  • Emotional vulnerability
  • Talking about ‘placebo'
  • Soliciting, monitoring and charting assent or ‘endorsement’ for each step
