On Monday and Tuesday, 13th and 14th of March, our guests were the leading UK psychiatrists and psychotherapists Dr. Mark Collins, Dr. Serge Bedington, Dr. John Gillen and Dr. Graeme Pisa. In the largest amphitheater of the university building on Boulevard Maršala Tolbuhina 8, which was filled not only with our students and teachers, but also with many curious people and experts in the field of psychiatry and psychology, the guests expressed their, in many respects, new, even radical views on the methods applied so far in psychotherapeutic practice. Prominent British experts were against the attitude towards certain dominant “school” theory, referring to their own experience of working in prestigious clinics on the Island, in Spain and elsewhere. “As a psychiatrist, who for 25 years almost daily has been bringing together knowledge from theory and practice, I claimed the right to question some widespread doctrines,” Dr. Mark Collins said at the beginning of his introductory lecture. “We have to get used to look at things through different eyes and from a different angle to the usual practice of the ruling practice,” said Dr. Collins, recommending the audience healthy living, exercise and stay in nature and responsible attitude towards the content and the structure of the food. “Many diseases, including Parkinson’s, begin 20 or 30 years earlier due to mistakes in the diet,” said Dr. Collins.
At the lecture which was held on Tuesday, Dr. Serge Bedington spoke about the art of friendship and “Returning the heart to the corporate world.”
