“Ably chaired by HGI chair Sue Gray and facilitated by HG College CEO Jane Tyrrell, the day began with co-founder of Human Givens Ivan Tyrrell explaining the truth about depression, reviewing the organising ideas especially with regard to the current pressures which are leading to record numbers of people around the world reporting mental health difficulties.
The topic of working within organisations and the workplace was the theme of Joe Griffin’s fascinating talk. His streamlined ‘traffic light’ approach to identifying unmet needs at work was welcomed, expanding as it did on his presentation to the Human Givens Conference in 2018. A lively Q&A led to greater elucidation and insights from Joe’s vast experience.
Ezra Hewing of Suffolk Mind looked at how much wrong thinking about depression has come about, and how difficult it is to change that thinking. He described the current state of scientific knowledge and showed how latest findings about the link between inflammation and depression fit entirely with the human givens explanation for depression and how to lift it. Ezra has also written an article on the myth of serotonin imbalance that will appear in the next edition of the Human Givens Journal.
HG practitioner Fiona Sheldon and Human Givens College tutor, Jo Baker, spoke of the positive impact the human givens solution-focused approach has had on clients here and abroad. Fiona described how she has taken her work to Uganda, there helping many people traumatised by conflict; and Jo spoke of working with an overseas college student to great effect. Marion Brown reviewed the extensive research she has done, sharing the latest findings on the use of anti-depressants, with a view to helping people acquire a better understanding of what they can do to inform and optimise their own choices.
