'The Lost Update'

This Course was originally created as a collaboration with Wessex LMCs to provide “CPD with a difference” for GPs in Wessex. We are currently scheduling the course in several locations in the UK between October 2019 and April 2020.

What others say...

“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”  GP from January 2019 Course

“I'm using the Needs and Resources Audit regularly with my patients”

'Depression? There is Hope!'

This three-hour course for GPs examines our current 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.

What others say...

"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"
