Lessons from an Integrated Mental Health Care Approach
Saturday 29 February & Sunday 1 March 2020 - London
With Benjamin Fry, Dr Nuri Gene-Cos, Dr Phil Mollon, Dr Alon Reshef and Dr Yorai Sella
Previous notions of health and disease have tended to separate the mind from other organic processes. However, when we start to think of the mind as an entity that spreads throughout the body in a highly complex network of feedback loops between thoughts, feelings and chemicals then a holistic model of mental health care makes great sense.READ MORE...
So how does an integrated mental health team rise to the challenge of providing a service that transcends a dualistic mind-body model? The Emek Medical Center in Northern Israel has been trying to answer this question. They find that patients with high levels of anxiety, depression, somatisation and post-traumatic symptomologies benefit greatly from integrative body-mind approaches – psychotherapy offered in combination with complementary
medicine. As a result, they have designed an innovative therapeutic model incorporating Traditional Chinese Medicine, Buddhist and Taoist approaches, reflexology and body-oriented psychotherapy sitting alongside contemporary psychoanalytic theory. And it is proving to be highly effective in both NHS and private settings.
Bringing together an international panel of speakers, this conference will discuss the work of the Emek Medical Centre, what they have found that works, and comparable developments in UK mental health care provisions created by British practitioners exploring therapeutic insights drawn from other healing paradigms, such as incorporating the senses and energy work. Five talks on Day One will be followed by two in-depth workshops on Day Two.
