The Mind-Body Connection: How to help people improve their mental and physical health

Go Back


The wealth of new information and practical applications deriving from the latest mind/body research that Dr Andrew Morrice shares with you on this fascinating 1-day course could prove of profound benefit to you and your clients.

What you will gain from attending:

  • Increased knowledge of the interdependence of the mind-body system and how this is continually impacting on our lives
  • An understanding of the physical health challenges facing us today and why, despite the wonders of modern medicine, chronic ill health is rising
  • 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 created
  • Understanding of the ways in which activity and exercise can maintain or undermine health
  • Greater clarity about the key 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 effects of diet on our emotional and physical health, and how emotional and cognitive patterns interfere with our ability to nourish ourselves appropriately
  • The interrelationship of food and drugs – how some foods are addictive
  • 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 simple and powerful changes to lifestyle that can augment the effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling
  • Sound information and a range of metaphors to help people make those healthy lifestyle changes
  • Knowledge of why the disease model works just as badly when applied to ‘chronic physical disease’ as it does in ‘mental illness’
  • A recognition of our limitations when giving advice
