The National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine (NICABM) is a pioneer and leader in the field of mind-body-spirit medicine. As an accredited provider of continuing education for health and mental health care professionals for over 20 years, NICABM is at the forefront of developing and delivering programs with "take home" ideas, immediately adaptable for practitioners to use with their patients. We offer programs in brain science, treating trauma, mindfulness meditation, and other cutting-edge topics in mind-body medicine. Through expert interviews highlighting the latest ideas, we equip practitioners with innovative and effective techniques to use with clients. The National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine supports the integration of mind-body and behavioral medicine with Western medicine. NICABM does not advocate the use of alternative and/or complementary medicine in lieu of conventional medicine. NICABM supports the thoughtful consideration of the research and efficacy of behavioral medicine and, where appropriate, the application and integration of these treatment modalities.
