Courses and CPD

JoinedUpHealth Courses are built on over 20 years experience ...

of medical practice, teaching and speaking, including 15 years facilitating small group learning and lecturing on the Whole Person Care course at Bristol Medical School.  The courses are based on the fundamental "operating system" of the Human Givens approach and are designed to be informative, scientifically up to date, and evidence-based, yet also rich in ideas, and stimulating to the imagination too.  

At present the focus is on courses providing CPD for GPs and other primary care professionals.  Plans are already being made for JoinedUpHealth courses for the public. 

'The Lost Update'

This Course was created as a collaboration with Wessex LMCs. The intention was to create “CPD with a difference” for GPs in Wessex. We are now planning further dates in other parts of the UK and (possibly) the Republic of Ireland and the Netherlands.

“a wide array of thoroughly researched information presented eloquently and with good humour.  The group was encouraged to be very dynamic.  I came away feeling refreshed both for myself and also with increased enthusiasm and some new insight and tools”

'Depression? There is Hope!'

This 3 hour course for GPs examines our currrent approaches to depression, introduces learners to the innate needs and resources model and an integrated, up-to-date model of brain function, explains the two main vicious cycles of depression, and ends with series options for helping patients recover more quickly, and consultations flow more hopefully. This course has been generously funded through the Human Givens Foundation at the request of a family bereaved of a daughter through depression.

"I think this meeting deserves high praise, it was a new way of thinking about depression for me and feels like it has opened up lots of doors"

"[A] structured and evidence based way about looking at and treating depression. Positivity in a rather gloomy heart sinking group of its that are often difficult to help"

"A really excellent course"
