Dr John Arden Returns To Sydney To Present On Revolutionary Developments In Mental Healthcare

“His integration of the latest knowledge in neuroscience and its clinical applications is impressive, and he conveys this with warmth, humour and clarity.”

IMMEDIATE RELEASE: STARTTS is thrilled to present Dr John Arden PhD ABPP on his return to Australia for one of the first of our clinical seminars in 2019.

This new seminar based on Dr John Arden’s newly released book, Mind-Brain-Gene: Toward the Integration of Psychotherapy, (W.W.Norton & Company, 2019) will discuss the sea change occurring in clinical treatment; how we conceptualise mental health problems and their solutions.

Dr. Arden’s study of neuropsychology has inspired him to integrate neuroscience and psychotherapy, synthesizing the biological and psychological into a new vision for psychotherapy: Brain-Based Therapy, which he has presented in all US States and 26 countries. He is the author of 15 books, including the highly acclaimed, Rewire Your Brain.

He recently retired from Kaiser Permanente where he served as the Northern California Regional Director of Training, where he developed one of the largest mental health training programs in the United States. In this capacity John oversaw more than 150 interns and postdoctoral psychology residents in 24 medical centres.

“I am excited to present on the revolutionary developments in mental healthcare,” said John Arden ahead of the seminar.

“The book Mind-Brain-Gene will serve as an important supplement to the seminar.”

“John Arden is one of our most inspiring speakers and his trainings have received excellent evaluations,” said Liz Shean, Editor of Psychotherapy in Australia.

“His integration of the latest knowledge in neuroscience and its clinical applications is impressive, and he conveys this with warmth, humour and clarity.”

This seminar will apply an integrative approach to the clinical assessment and treatment of trauma, anxiety and depression, using practical examples and case studies. It will also explore the wide variety of factors having multidirectional causal relationships between stress, depression, anxiety, the immune system, and gene expression.

The interaction between all these factors has been illuminated by studies examining the effects of lifestyle factors on the incidence of health and psychological problems. There are significant relationships between immune system function, stress, insecure attachment, anxiety, depression, poor nutrition, bad quality sleep, physical inactivity, and neurophysiological dysregulation.

The 2-day seminar will be held from 7 – 8 March 2019, at the NSW Teachers Federation Conference Centre, Surry Hills from 9:30am – 5:00pm.
