The Mind-Body Connection- Tutor: Dr Andrew Morrice
Getting our physical needs met healthily is just as important as ensuring that our innate emotional needs are met well, 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.
Human Givens therapy is a truly bio-psycho-social model of emotional and mental well-being, which draws much of its strength from brain-science, but there is more – there are also physical benefits to be had from good therapy and education. The day looks at these too and at how ‘physical’ factors can help create emotional and mental challenges.
