Integrative Psychiatry

Integrative Medicine broadly defines a clinical paradigm that is patient-centered, healing-oriented, health promoting, and embracing of appropriate therapeutic approaches whether they originate in conventional or complementary medicine (Dodds et al, 2013). It reaffirms the importance of the therapeutic relationship, focuses comprehensively on the whole person, and renews attention to healing (Institute of Medicine, 2009b). Practitioners are called to exemplify and commit themselves to self-exploration and self-development. Mind body medicine, which is an important component of integrative medicine, particularly emphasizes and provides skills for provider wellness, self-awareness, reflection, and compassion toward the self and others.

The Integrative Psychiatry Program at the University of Arizona is dedicated to educating physicians-in-training to provide a holistic approach to mental healthcare. Psychiatry residents and fellows have the opportunity to participate in the Integrative Psychiatry Track to learn the principles and the up-to-date evidence base for various approaches.
