Acupuncture and NADA capacity building as humanitarian aid: Preparing for a post-disaster world of community supported healthcareModule 1: Starting out in humanitarian aid with needles at handWith Megan Yarberry and Ryan Bemis
Bringing acupuncture or any outside aid into a humanitarian aid context comes with the risk of doing more harm than good. The NADA ear acupuncture model offers a starting point for introducing acupuncture into a humanitarian aid program in a culturally competent way.
This is an introductory webinar designed for NADA Registered Trainers in the US/Canada, and also for NADA trainers, ADSes, acupuncturists, doctors, and organizations in other international settings wanting to develop a NADA program in the developing world. Ryan will outline some of the basic components of building a successful, and culturally competent NADA acudetox program.
We'll open up the can of what can go wrong with and what are the limitations of outside humanitarian aid support, and where that leaves something like NADA. You’ll gain an overview of how NADA operates in challenging contexts in response to poverty, violence, and disaster relief, with in depth analysis of successful long-term NADA programs that we have available to learn from in the history of NADA’s development.
These classes are designed for ADSes, acupuncturists, community organizers, and anyone interested in learning how to start an acupuncture program within a humanitarian aid project.
Each class is $25 for a 4 hour live webinar via zoom.
