New free online course for GPs
Despite being an extremely common presentation, or factor, in primary care consultations, depression receives disproportionately little attention in doctors' pre- and post-graduate training. To help plug this gap and give doctors the information and skills they need, the Human Givens Foundation has worked with Dr Andrew Morrice and other GPs trained in the HG approach to develop a new free online course aimed specifically at working with depression in a GP practice.
The course introduces doctors to the human givens model, and gives them an up-to-date model of depression which covers all aspects of the condition, and a practical toolkit, put together by HG-trained GPs, which they can draw on in patient consultations.
Please tell any doctors or medics you know about this course – it could help thousands of people, including the doctors themselves. Find out more >
The Human Givens Podcast series is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in mental health and wellbeing, and how the human givens approach is being used in a wide variety of situations.
On the latest episode Hannah Phillips talks about her long battle with mental health illnesses, including OCD, and how human givens therapy, provided through the charity bigmoose, helped turn things around for her. Listen here >
New CPD courses
HG College has added new dates to its website for 2024 – including Part 2 and Part 3 Diploma dates, and attended courses in London, Bristol and Leeds – with some special offers on upcoming workshops too!
The College has developed several new courses, including Dealing with Conflict, which is recommended by Educational Director Gareth Hughes to all therapists as an important part of their ongoing career development – so much so, that from summer 2024 the course will become part of the HG Diploma. Because of its subject matter, the workshop has wide applications outside therapy too...
The latest issue of the Human Givens Journal is yet again full of fascinating and inspiring articles – such as Denise Winn's look at whether autism and schizophrenia have more in common than usually thought – case histories, research findings, book reviews and two moving First Person accounts from HG therapists themselves.
