       WHAT WOULD GANDHI DO?

    In this time of increased political and social turmoil how can we sustain a personal healthy balance as well as help others manage new stressors.  The life of Mahatma Gandhi provides a powerful role model  – we practitioners can learn from the strategies he employed during encounters with social change and strife. This training will provide an overview of Gandhi’s contributions to society as a humble individual prepared to experiment with the very foundation of his consciousness. His message is timeless and just as appropriate to the difficulties we face today as it was in his own time.

    Srimati Karuna, the Director of the Gandhi Memorial Center in Washington DC, will speak about Gandhi’s life, the challenges he faced and the contributions he made in the face of those challenges. Dr. Karen Shanor will discuss the neurology of relevant aspects of our program, such as: awe, emotional regulation, judgment, resilience, and meditation. Dr. David Freeman will then lead a series of discussions (including small groups) on how each of us can best use what we learned in the workshop in our personal and professional lives. 


    Workshop Objectives: At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

    1.      Articulate two elements of the role of reflection and two elements of the role of action in the process of recovery.

    2.      Identify the impact of disruptive social and political stressors on our own lives.

    3.      Identify the impact of these pressures on our clients, whoever or whatever they may be.

    4.         Identify three of Gandhi’s struggles that are relevant in our time.

     5.  Identify three of Gandhi’s teachings that can be incorporated into our clinical work.

      Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS Therapy) is a safe and effective treatment for individuals diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) who have not experienced satisfactory improvement from antidepressant medication. TMS Therapy can be used in conjunction with medication or as a stand-alone treatment.

      TMS Therapy works by delivering magnetic pulses to specific areas of the brain involved in mood regulation – areas known to be underactive in those diagnosed with MDD. The magnetic pulses stimulate brain cells, thereby improving the brain’s ability to regulate mood.

      Come and learn more about TMS on September 29, 2017 at 1pm when DCPA presents this interesting, informative workshop.  Learn clinical application, biological effects, predictors of response, and other issues of this approach.

      Workshop Objectives: At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to :

      • Discuss the history of TMS clinical application of treatment
      • Identify the appropriate patient for TMS Therapy.
