Globally, mental health conditions are on the rise. This is why health care professionals need to incorporate a compassionate approach to health. There is a growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating that social and physical environments that threaten human development (ie trauma) can lead to short-term physiologic and psychological adjustments that are necessary for immediate survival and adaptation, but which may come at a significant cost to long-term health outcomes, learning, behaviour and longevity. In this talk, learn how to go beyond the diagnosis to understand the underlying dysfunctional patterns that can form in childhood which become compensation mechanisms in adulthood. This paradigm shift will allow you to have a totally different view of yourself, and a totally different view of others. By examining core beliefs, limiting beliefs and unveiling shadow beliefs we can get to the root causes of our suffering.
Discover how our emotional well-being and our social connectivity are intimately intertwined with health. Chronic illnesses may not be separate and distinct diseases but multilayered processes that reflect compensations to the environmental influences we are exposed to. As human beings, we are not simply physical entities. We have minds, that result in the thoughts we think. We have emotions, that result in what we feel and we translate these feelings into meaning. Ultimately, we are spiritual beings. As a profession we acknowledge the spiritual aspect of healing but we don’t give a common language to express it. Learn the language of spirit by understanding compassion, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, and the role of love in medicine.
