MBM Student Participates in End of Life Research: Introducing Frank Munoz

03/28/2012

 

          As a Chaplain Frank Munoz was an integral part of the health care team at Children’s Hospital in Orange County, California assisting children with cancer and their families manage their diagnosis.  Through his work he noticed an invisible boundary between patient and families, and the health care team.  Something was missing.  Despite the best efforts of the group to provide the most compassionate care to the patients and their families, they were unable to reach some people and help ease their suffering.  The boundary that Frank experienced fueled his desire to seek knowledge and develop skills to better serve the children and their families facing a life altering diagnosis.  This inspiration led Frank to Saybrook University where he is pursuing a Ph.D. in Mind Body Medicine. 

            Frank then actively pursued funding for his education through the National Institutes of Health (NIH), pursuing a grant that would complement his interests.  Doctoral coursework combined with the demands of learning how to be a healthcare researcher is time consuming.  The combination is a beautiful synergy that is assisting Frank in learning how to best care for people that he works with, and at the same time is allowing him to make a significant contribution to health care professionals working in similar situations.

Mind-Body Medicine and Dogs?

03/27/2012

 

          How can the influence of the human and animal (HA) bond be used for the greater good? Angeline Siegel is so fascinated by this subject matter, that she felt compelled to study Mind-Body Medicine at Saybrook, with the intention of relating her degree to both humans and animals.  Angeline was the first recipient of a Master’s in Mind-Body Medicine from Saybrook University.  Her master’s project title was “A Veterinarian’s Guide to Mind-Body Medicine: Creating Greater Health and Well-Being in the Human-Animal Bond.” 

          Angeline worked with holistic veterinarian Michael Bartholomew for a two-week practicum in November, 2010 in South Salem, New York at the Smith Ridge Veterinary Center.  That opportunity gave her the time and experience to define the audience she is working with, and to look at how veterinarians can influence the health of the human animal bond.  Then for her master’s project, she used Saybrook University faculty member Jeannie Achterberg as her committee chair, and Dr. Bartholomew as a committee member.  Dr. Achterberg is widely known for her research and publications on the use of imagery for healing, but also has a long-standing interest in the bond between humans and animals.
