This program will explore the current limitations and narrowness of the current paradigm in psychiatry. Recent innovations point psychiatry towards both a more realistic neuroscience, increasing respect for the body and a reasonable allowance for the psyche and soul. Combining elements like gut science, nutrition, neurofeedback, cognitive training, psychedelics, ketamine, music and ritual can usher in a new era in which body, mind and spirit work together for full expression of our human potential.By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Review the current limitations of modern psychiatry
- Describe the basic science and clinical benefits of neurofeedback
- State the brain science behind the power of psychedelics
