Pediatric Chinese Medicine and the Five Element Types


Join Michaela Carder to explore the Five Element lens as a way to better understand the children you care for and work with. Children are unique with very different needs from one another. When it comes to parenting, behavior challenges, and health concerns, what effects one child may not effect another. One may thrive in an environment, while another may fail. Come learn about the Five Elements (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood) and how they are reflected in children’s personalities, behaviors, and health. Learn strategies for dealing with their health concerns, and deepen your understanding, respect, and love for their unique needs.
