Eastern Healing for the Western Mind
QiGong and psychotherapy may sound like an odd combination, however, Dr. Harlene Goldschmidt, psychologist and certified teacher/practitioner of clinical QiGong, understands well how each benefits and supports the other.
When people get stuck in unwanted emotional patterns, their emotional life affects their health, relationships and ability to succeed. Psychotherapy can help people feel more hopeful, empowered and confident. By incorporating Qigong, a time-honored, natural healing, self-care system from China, Dr. Goldschmidt helps people learn to use body, mind and breath to create enduring emotional balance. These skills may be used anywhere to relieve stress and to increase feelings of peacefulness.
To learn more about this type of therapy, Dr. Goldschmidt is offering the following classes. Introduction to Qigong: Benefits of an Emerging Mind/Body Therapy, January 30, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at Warren Township Library; and Enhancing Psychotherapy with Qigong, February 2, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm in Hartman Lounge/Hennessy Hall at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
Dr. Goldschmidt is currently a faculty member at the Center of Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis of NJ (formally IPPNJ). She is also certified by the New Jersey State Nurses Associaiton (NJSNA) to teach a 30-hour course in Qigong for CEUs to nurses. She scheduled to each this CEU course at Atlantic Health Systems this year.
Office locations: Livingston and Warren NJ. Dr. Goldschmidt is available for individual psychotherapy appointments, and for consultation with therapists interested in adding Qigong to their practice. Call 973-533-9600 or visit HarleneGoldschmidtPhd.com. Facebook: EasternHealingWesternMind.
