THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS


                   


We are pleased to announce that we are the bookseller at the upcoming seminars in May with Dr John Arden. The Delphi Centre is conducting these seminars in Melbourne and Brisbane only. Brain Based Trauma Therapy: Integrating Neuroscience and Psychotherapy synthesizes neuroscience, evidence-based treatment, psychotherapy research and attachment theory into a hybrid therapeutic model. The training concentrates on new ways of looking at the therapeutic process, enabling therapists to move beyond the traditional theoretical school approach.

Dr Arden is the author of several books - all available on our website - including a new book entitled Brain2Brain, due to be published this month.

The 2015 RANZCP Congress is being held this year at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 3-7. We are pleased to be the bookseller at this important event. The theme, Measurers + Thinkers: Psychiatry as Science and Art, focuses on the advances in scientific understanding in the psychiatry field, balanced against the individual experiences of human beings who are the patients and partners in care.

Keynote speakers include Professor Jeffrey Braithwaite and Dr Cordelia Fine from Australia; Professor Carol Brayne from the UK; and Professor Read Montague from the USA.

(Elvin) Semrad taught us that most human suffering is related to love and loss and that the job of therapists is to help people 'acknowledge, experience and bear' the reality of life - with all its pleasures and heartbreak. 'The greatest sources of our suffering are the lies we tell ourselves,' he'd say, urging us to be honest with ourselves about every facet of our experience. He often said that people can never get better without knowing what they know and feeling what they feel.
