Symposium: Healing Unexplainable Pain
Sunday January 11 2015, 1:00PM - 6:30PM ET

This symposium will bridge the gap between the new neurobiological insights and recent clinical research on the psychotherapeutic treatment of patients suffering from psychosomatic distress by bringing together an international group of clinicians (psychiatrists, neurologists, primary care physicians, psychologists, and art psychotherapists) as well as developmental and cognitive-affective neuroscientists. Presentations will focus on the crucial role of early development and emotion regulation in health and disease, treatment implications of the latest research findings, state-of-the-art psychosomatic treatment programs in Europe, and illustration of the best treatment practices with clinical material.

Organized by SIRPA founder Georgie Oldfield, MCSP, this inaugural conference brings together medical experts from all over the world to discuss the causes and treatment of TMS.

The conference will be held at The Royal Society of Medicine in London.
