Improving Critical Thinking Skills

Critical thinking skills are critical for wellness practitioners in developing treatment plans, business plans, marketing plans, or when making any type of decisions for their practice. We cannot assume that our students know how to approach decisions critically. We need to discuss the basics of critical thinking before we ask them to work through treatment planning or any other practice related decision-making process.

The video below describes a 5-step process that can help you cover the basics of critical thinking.
