In this seminar, John Arden, the internationally known author, researcher and speaker, will present a powerful model of transformative psychotherapy providing an integrative approach to the diverse fields of epigenetics, neuroscience and clinical work. The workshop will be filled with research, practical self-care, clinical interventions and hope. It will challenge both the ways you view psychopathology and behaviour change, and it will provide novel perspectives that can be used by clients to revitalize their health and improve their lives.

 

The discovery of interactions between the mind, brain and our genes is constantly being developed. It is critical for professionals to have a complete overview of the current research within this field.

 

This seminar presents the sea change revolutionizing psychotherapy of the 21st Century. Back in the 20th Century there was a blizzard of psychotherapy schools, with a seemingly new approach surging in popularity, only to fade away as a distant memory a few years later. The 21st Century psychotherapy is all about the integration of what we have learned and synthesizing the new research on mind-brain-gene feedback loops. Teaching clients about these interactions boosts their motivation, improves their lives and paves a way towards lasting good mental health.

 

Join Dr John Arden and uncover a wide variety of relationships between stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, the immune system, and gene expression.
There are significant relationships between immune system function, stress, insecure attachment, anxiety, depression, poor nutrition, bad quality sleep, physical inactivity, and neurophysiological dysregulation. The interaction between all these factors has been illuminated by studies examining the effects of life style factors on the incidence of health and psychological problems. For example, insecure attachment, deprivation, and child abuse contribute to anxiety and depression in far more extensive ways then was believed. This complex range of health conditions effects millions of people who seek psychotherapy, counselling and support from mental health and disability services.
