Modality history, philosophy, basic techniques and methods of each discipline are surveyed, along with career and training opportunities, licensure guidelines and salary information. With over 2,500 entries, it also features continuing education and postgraduate studies, conference and retreat centers, online resources and social networks, associations and research institutes, and major periodicals and publications.
