John Arden, PhD, ABPP has over 40 years of experience providing psychological services and directing mental health programs.
Dr. Arden’s most recent book is “MIND-BRAIN-GENE: Towards Psychotherapy Integration”. The book explores recent research in neuroscience and psychology that shows the mind is not one thing, but is composed of ongoing interactions between mental operating networks. For example, chronic inflammation and autoimmune disorders are strongly associated with depression and anxiety. Dysregulations of immune system, diet, and even gut bacteria profoundly affect mental health. Since mental health and physical health can no longer be compartmentalized as areas addressed by specialists, psychotherapists need to understand the mind-brain-body feedback loops.
You can find out more about the new book Mind-Brain-Gene from Dr. John Arden's website
"Instead of choosing from the blizzard of psychotherapy schools of the past we must move toward finding common denominators among them. Similarly, today’s psychotherapy necessitates the integration of the mind and body not the past practice of compartmentalization of mental health and physical health. This book contributes to the sea change in how we conceptualize mental health problems and their solutions."
