Nov 22, 2016

On this edition of ST Medical Monday, an interesting chat with Dr. James S. Gordon, a well-regarded expert on using mind-body medicine to heal depression, anxiety, and psychological trauma. Dr. Gordon is the Founder and Executive Director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine; he's also a Clinical Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at Georgetown Medical School. He tells us about The Center for Mind-Body Medicine (or CMBM) on today's show. This Center, as noted at its website, "was founded in 1991...[and has since] become a worldwide leader in making self-care, group support, and community-building central to all healthcare, the training of health professionals, and the education of children. CMBM has focused on providing innovative solutions to some of the world's most intractable and complex psychological and physical problems. CMBM's international faculty of 160 experts have trained over 5,000 health professionals, educators, and community leaders in [its] pioneering mind-body medicine model of self-care, self-awareness, and group support; they in turn integrate our model into their communities and use it with the populations they serve, allowing us to benefit millions of people."
