The Mind-body Connection
in Occupational Health
A Collaborative Approach that Reduces Absenteeism 
and Other Health Care Costs


The skyrocketing costs of hi-tech health care have rendered group health insurance one of the most expensive — and one of the most sought after — benefits that employers can provide to their employees. Yet the power of mind to cure or reduce occupational health health problems remains largely untapped. In this seminar you will what you can realistically expect — and not expect — from the power of the mind to heal, based on hard evidence and sound, scientific principles. You will also learn the simple, inexpensive therapeutic techniques that are often all you need to avoid costly surgical operations or to shorten expensive hospital stays.

Who Should Attend

Corporate health care professionals of all types, human resources and benefits administrators, and all managers responsible for decisions that affect their employees’ occupational health.

  • What mind-body medicine entails
  • The theory and scientific evidence of mind-body medicine
