Mind-Brain-Gene: Toward the Integration of Psychotherapy

John Arden
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

YWCA Toronto - Elm St Location

Every few years a seemingly new psychotherapeutic approach surges in popularity, only to fade away later as a distant memory. However, a wide variety of interactive factors underlying many health and mental health problems have now been identified and increasingly tracked and empirically verified.

Mind-Brain-Gene synthesizes psychoneuroimmunology and epigenetics and combines these fields with the neuroscience of interpersonal emotional and cognitive dynamics and psychotherapeutic approaches. This integrative model promotes a sea change in how we conceptualize mental health problems and their solutions.

There are significant relationships between immune system function, stress, insecure attachment, anxiety, depression, poor nutrition, bad quality sleep, physical inactivity, and neurophysiological dysregulation. For example, insecure attachment, deprivation, and child abuse contribute to anxiety and depression in far more extensive ways then was previously believed. This complex range of health conditions affects millions of people who seek psychotherapy.

In this workshop, you will learn how the immune system, diet, brain structure, and even gut bacteria affect mental health. Psychotherapists in the 21st Century will by necessity become more like healthcare workers to address and resolve adverse mind-body-brain interaction. This workshop will give you the insight that will help you formulate treatments and interventions informed by your clients’ mental, physical and social environment.

You Will Learn:

• About the interaction between the immune system, genes, brain dynamics, and mental health
• How to distinguish between various health conditions and psychological disorders and where they overlap
• How to choose which psychotherapeutic intervention to use for various psychological conditions
• How genes can be expressed or suppressed
• Brain-based and evidence-based approaches with the most practical outcomes
• How to formulate a treatment plan most appropriate for your client based on her/his ethnicity, socio-economic position, and LGBTQ identification.
