Fundamentals of epigenetics

This certificate course is designed in such a way that the participants are able, on the one hand, to continue their education independently after the course, and on the other hand, to acquire a deeper insight into one of the most important topics in life - namely health - themselves.

Everyone knows the terms genetics or/and epigenetics. But, does one also understand what exactly is meant by this? Since Watson and Krick's discovery in 1953, the foundations have been laid for more in-depth research into the genome. In the 1960s, the term epigenetics was added. The external circumstances that can turn genes on or off. The huge research field was opened. Forensic scientists make use of genetics, as does medicine. The research field of genetics and epigenetics in the context of health maintenance and its promotion has been on the rise for a few decades and is becoming more and more popular, by revealing significant data and information on the approach towards optimal health from a bio-psychosocial point of view.

This certificate course is designed to provide a foundation for understanding how genetic and epigenetic processes work as a basis for further action to promote health.

A wide variety of tasks, exercises and activities are chosen to create a routine in therapy in the sense of integrative application/medicine. A benefit both for people who are now moving from a vocational apprenticeship towards higher education as part of the Bruges/Copenhagen process, or academics who have been out of university for some time and want to continue their education through an academic continuing education program, thus reacquiring current skills for study.
