The Science of Hope
Henry Emmons is a psychiatrist who integrates mind-body and natural therapies, mindfulness and Buddhist teachings, and compassion into his clinical work. Henry developed the Resilience Training Program, which is currently offered at the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing. This holistic program focuses on the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of mental health and teaches people suffering from depression and anxiety to draw on their natural capacity for resilience through changes in diet, positive thinking, and mindfulness. This unique program is based upon the ideas developed in his books, The Chemistry of Joy and The Chemistry of Calm, and has helped many restore balance, foster meaningful relationships, and rediscover joy in their lives. Using story, metaphor, poetry and recent findings in neuroscience, Henry’s STO Talk will elaborate on the scientific basis of hope for the millions of people who suffer from common emotional issues like depression and anxiety.
