Level 3 - Client Management & Advanced Techniques
Return

Length: 4 Hours
Prerequisites: eTouch for Health Level II

Recommended: Complete the eTouch for Health Level I Tutorial, read Touch for Health - the Complete Edition, pp. 66; 315-325; 338-339.


Level III - focuses on the use of the software as a practitioner tool and examines client management and personal reports in more detail. This level also introduces the advanced techniques of the dynamic eTouch Priority System and using the integrated and dynamically working Five-Element Metaphors as the balancing technique in the practice balance. Since the John F. Thie Memorial Research Database is currently inactive, the internal research capabilities built into eTouch are examined. These allow gathering an analyzing empirical data over time and producing reports.

As Touch for Health (TFH) matures and moves closer to the mainstream of healthcare in the future, the TFH practitioner will need professional tools, like eTouch for Health, to assist them. Part of the duties of a TFH Practitioner is to manage the records related to their clients. eTouch stores contact and address information, Session results and information that describes a clients general health condition. You can also record specific conditions and diagnosis that the client has already received from professional healthcare providers. These are important so that you can be aware of the specific health issues of your clients as you work with them energetically through TFH.

The Admin(istrator) in eTouch has special privileges that allow importing records, running maintenance procedures and resetting passwords. In the first exercise, you will login the Admin and then import a list of records into eTouch. You will then add photos for a person and then review the personal reports.

eTouch contains advanced features such as the Database Priority and Extend Systems. The Database Priority System is displayed in the TFH Reference and implemented in the Session Wizard. Here, the Priority System can be used to shape the type and scope of the session as well as used to select techniques based on priority. The dynamic workings of the Five Element Metaphors are also examined in this workshop. The Extend System is examined in this workshop where a basic introduction to EFT is located.

At the end of this workshop, the student will have a thorough understanding and working knowledge of the Client Management and Advanced Techniques that are part of the
eTouch for Health software system.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Examine the Privileges of the Administrator (Admin) and perform Admin Tasks
  • Examine all the features available for Tracking Client Information
  • Review the Extend System
  • Use the Priority System to shape the Session and then use in a One-Point Balance
  • Review the Personal Research Capabilities.

Level 4 - Projecting and Sharing eTouch for Health
Return

Length: 4 Hours

Prerequisites: eTouch for Health Level 3


Level 4 - This workshop focuses on basic technical issues of using a computer for presentation of information. It also presents basic computer terms that users of these modern technologies may face. It does not attempt to make a technical expert out of the workshop attendees but only presents concepts and tools that will assist when using computerized presentation systems in classes, presentations and demonstrations. The knowledge gained here can be used in many areas.

The primary benefit of this workshop is to assist the instructor, presenter or consultant in selecting tools that will make them more effective as presenters of the Touch for Health / eTouch for Health information during classes and sessions. Many people have underlying fears and phobias of technology. This workshop is designed to help the attendee overcome these basic fears and become more effective as instructors and presenters. This workshop also rounds out the eTouch for Health Workshops to 16 Hours which will allow the eTouch Workshops to serve as an Instructor Update.


Level 4 Objectives:

Technology has invaded healthcare whether we like it our not. The purpose of this workshop is to look at some of the positive ways that technology can be used to help teach, learn and use Touch for Health. Some basic and helpful technical concepts and terms will be presented in this workshop but the goal is not to make anyone a technical expert but rather to present some useful ways that the technology can be applied in a classroom environment and to answer basic questions of students when first installing and using eTouch.

The Role of Technology in Healthcare:

  • Information Management - record-keeping of clients and sessions
  • Presentation of Information - visual information of class materials and supporting charts, illustrations and other visuals. “A picture is worth a thousand words!”
  • Distribution of Knowledge and Information- software, the Internet, email and DVDs can easily store and transmit information in seconds to any part of the world
  • Paperless Storage and Exchange of Records- with the increased need and requirement for record-keeping in all aspects of healthcare, technology is playing a predominant role in reducing the amount of paper being used to store these records.

Technical Basics:

  • Microprocessors
  • Operating Systems
  • Applications / Apps
  • Screen Resolution
  • Virus Protection
  • Wired versus wireless

Display Methods:

  • Digital Displays
  • Laptops, iPad Tablets and iPhone
  • Apple TV
  • Digital Projectors
  • Cables

Common Technical Issues:

  • Installation with Virus Protection On
  • Adjusting Screen Resolution
  • Passwords Lost
  • Confidentiality
  • Passwords
  • Blocking personal information on reports
  • User-assigned Passwords
  • A super-confidential solution
