The NADA protocol
Date(s): 12 - 13 February 2020
Time: 10am - 5pm
Eligibility: Acupuncture graduates & clinical students with Permission to Practice
The NADA protocol is a standard non-diagnostic treatment using five auricular points. It is commonly used within substance misuse/addiction services. Over recent years, it has begun to be used in other areas such as mental health and psychiatric care, smoking cessation, cancer care services, trauma and for young people with behavioural disorders.
Your training will be interspersed with clinical practice and it is helpful, although not essential, to receive treatment as well as deliver it.
The course will lead to NADA-UK certification. There is a £40 annual registration to NADA-UK required if you need certification for work.
A practitioner pack is included with a work manual, providing you with useful documents for setting up a NADA service.
