Self-Care Methods will provide the student with a framework to develop personalized medicine strategies in the context of patient relationship to self, others and the natural environment - in other words the biopsychospiritual domain. The course will analyze aspects of spirituality, social connections, and self-understanding through the lens of stress, sleep and biological rhythms. Various topics include: psychological measurement of meaning and purpose; social connectivity; mood; and the physiologic correlates such as cortisol, heart rate variability, immune competence and autonomic balance with respect to the homeodynamic stress response. Treatment strategies to mitigate illness states in the biopsychospiritual domain will be analyzed in detail including: contemplative strategies, movement therapies, sleep hygiene, dietary supplements and medications.
