ROOM 704

Zang Xiang is a theoretical system used in traditional Chinese medicine to organize the relationship between the human anatomy and its physical expressions. Through primarily experiential engagement, this half-day workshop will introduce the fundamental principles of Zang Xiang as it relates to the general practice of expressive therapies, and specifically to ASD. According to Zang Xiang, the human body is composed of Zang-organs and Fu-organs, which form an internal system that culminate into visible expressions. Furthermore, this biological system is connected to the external realm of sound, color and movement, creating a holistic experience for the human being. Case examples will illustrate how autism can be better understood and treated by using this trifocal model of relationships between physiology, pathology, and environment.
