Fostering a Safer and More Therapeutic Process

IMPORTANT!! Please check the Board Approval Information below to ensure the course is approved by your professional board and will provide the CE credits you need.

Course Description

We make our choices based upon the available information we receive. Thinking, memory and attitude operate on two levels: the conscious/deliberate and the unconscious/automatic. “Dual processing,” researchers call it. The purpose of this course is to examine physiologic explanations for intuition and identify ways to become more aware of how to facilitate accessing non-conscious information. Increased understanding of underlying processes can foster greater efficiency, accuracy and safety when combining intuition with conscious cognitive processes.

Purpose and Objectives

  • Define intuition, and consider its role in information retrieval.

  • Consider the process of intuition as it applies to implicit learning.

  • Consider the process of intuition as it applies to empathetic information.

  • Consider the process of increased awareness as vital for accurate intuition.

  • Become aware of a strategy to combine intuition with cognition in order to gain information to help another person.

  • Apply this course information to a variety of patient/client situations, such as when working with confused patients, intellectually disabled patients, clients with language impairments, emotionallytroubled patients, etc.
