Holistic Diagnosis

Psychiatric symptoms – panic attacks say, or suicidal thoughts – arise from the deep ecology of an individual human life. Appreciating the role a symptom plays in this big picture enables us to understand and empathize with patients in a vital way. Such understanding and empathy in turn set the stage for successful intervention in the entire ecosystem, restoring it to a state of health.
I recently spoke with my wonderful colleague Brandon Vance MD about this ecological view of our work. Brandon is a noted psychiatrist and trainer with wide experience delivering CBT across a variety of platforms. We invite you to sit in on our conversation.
