Dr Phil Davison, Consultant Psychiatrist
Mindfulness is in the news, often, and is postulated as a helpful strategy for many things.
Stress in the workplace or in the classroom to anxiety and depression.
By the end of the meeting, Dr. Davison is confident that you will have a better understanding of Mindfulness, and its evidence base in its clinical applications. You will be able to decide whether it might also help you in other areas of your life.

Dr John Wilkins, Consultant Psychiatrist
Psychiatry can seem like a desperate place sometimes. We latch onto any new development and promote it enthusiastically until we realise that it isn't all it's cracked up to be and has a whole range of side effects that the pharmaceutical companies didn't realise or played down. We steal the medications used by other specialities with the enthusiasm of a child with a shiny new toy only to find that it interacts with all the other medications the patient takes sometimes leaving the GP to navigate the boundary between often competing health needs.
Why? As I said, Psychiatry can be a desperate place sometimes. Our treatments are so unsatisfactory that we grasp any passing possibility that something might be better with far more enthusiasm than is healthy.
In this talk I will not simply present a list of medications, their effects, side-effects and interactions. You can read the BNF or use Google for that. I will use case examples to illustrate dilemmas in prescribing and invite the audience to contribute with their experiences. You may wish to bring along a prescribing dilemma from your own practice to discuss - not too many though as we only have an hour!

Toria Tutt, Psychotherapist
When it comes to looking at our rising stress levels and increased struggles within the work place “resilience” appears to be the new “buzz word” for 2017/2018!!
But what does it really mean? And what impact does a lack of resilience and low self-esteem have, not just our working day, but in our personal lives as well?
This talk gets to grips with what resilience is, its relationship with low self-esteem, and why some people are less resilient than others. It also focuses on beginning to develop practical skills – exploring the benefits we might get from increased resilience and how to build skills to help recognise our strengths, change any negative thoughts about ourselves and develop positive coping behaviours.
