Conferences and events
Our attended events are always inspiring and stimulating and a great networking opportunity. They are well attended by a range of interesting people from around the world, the majority of whom use the human givens approach directly in their work, but many others have benefited from it in their lives or are simply interested in how the rich psychological knowledge the approach encapsulates can be used to improve not only mental health and wellbeing, but any human endeavour.
THE LIFTING DEPRESSION SUMMIT
On Saturday 27th February 2021, the HGI held its first online conference. Expert speakers, including HG co-founders, Ivan Tyrrell and Joe Griffin, explained and demonstrated how most depression can be lifted quickly and effectively. The day received excellent feedback and also included sessions containing important information about antidepressants and the latest neuroscientific perspectives on serotonin and inflammation in relation to depression. The replay of the event is now available - you can find out more here.
