Todays’ health professionals recognise that the body and mind are not separate entities and must be treated together. This unique and dynamic seminar introduces clinicians to Psychoneuroimmunology, the science of mind body interactions and its’ relevance to understanding depression. Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is the study of interactions between psychological and physiological pathways that link thoughts, emotions and health. Participants are introduced to leading research that demonstrate how these interactions are affected by depression and how depression affects nervous, endocrine and immune functions. For example, current research identifies that depression and inflammation are intrinsically linked. These insights enable clinicians to understand how both psychological and somatic approaches can reduce the impact of depression. Dr Judy Lovas translates cutting edge research into clear, clinical applications. She includes short videos, clear and up-to-date PowerPoint slides and a passionate, scientific and holistic approach.
