Sevenfold Constitutional Insights in Psychiatry
2:00pm to 3:15pm
Sunday, May 3 to Friday, May 8
Taught by Ursula Flatters MD
part of the Continuing Education Track, for experienced practitioners and those who have completed four or more years of IPMT training
This course will provide an in-depth exploration of seven constitutional gestures, with a special focus on their diagnostic and therapeutic use in psychiatry. This sevenfold approach connects to both older mythological pictures of temperament and character (such as Greek or Roman pictures of the seven planets and related gods), as well as more modern understanding of the influence of organic imbalances and their relationships to mood disorders.
This course assumes familiarity with basic anthroposophic principles (ideally completion of the four-year introductory training), but can be attended by Foundation Track participants if they have course director approval.
Dr. Flatters' teaching offers completely new insights for those who are hoping for a whole person approach to psychiatry that bridges understanding of body and mind.
