The Mind-Body Connection: Exploring the relationships between emotions, exercise and eating
Time & Location
About The Event
Training from the Human Givens College
Getting our physical needs met healthily is, of course, just as important as ensuring that our innate emotional needs are met well, especially since our physical health impacts on our mental health, and vice versa.
However, even though our physical needs may appear obvious – a healthy diet, regular exercise etc – we know that most of the chronic diseases sweeping through the Western World are linked to “lifestyle”, indicating that many people are not actually meeting their physical needs, or developing their physical resources, in healthy balanced ways – despite the vast array of information available to them.
Dr Andrew Morrice's fascinating day explores the many reasons for this (for instance, much of our collective thinking and advice about health is contradictory and distorted by vested interests and preconception) – and what can be done about them.
What you will gain from attending:
- A deeper knowledge of the interdependence of the mind-body system and the many ways it impacts on our lives
- Greater clarity about the role some emotions play in creating ill-health – and the powerful ways in which other emotional states promote health (including the key role of oxytocin)
- The simple and powerful changes to lifestyle that can augment the effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling
- An introduction to ways in which metaphor and other language skills can be used to help people make healthy changes
- Increased knowledge of the ways in which physical changes in the body contribute to emotional distress – in particular how physical changes contribute to depression
- The effects of diet on our emotional and physical health, and how emotional and cognitive patterns interfere with our ability to nourish ourselves appropriately
- A solid understanding of the physical health challenges facing us today and why, despite the wonders of modern medicine, chronic ill health
- is rising
- The different ways activity and exercise can maintain – or undermine – health
- The interrelationship between food and drugs – why some foods
- are addictive
- Are there similar problems in applying the disease model to ‘chronic physical illness’ as arise in ‘mental illness’?
- Insight into how the human givens approach can clarify complex and apparently conflicting information to provide robust and easily understood ideas about how human health can be maximised
- New ways to improve your own health and wellbeing
- Course notes, CPD Certificate and more...
Price: £192 per person (inc. VAT, lunch, refreshments and course notes)
