Giorgio Nardone

Psychologist, psychotherapist and founder of the Center for Strategic Therapy in Arezzo.

Video excerpt from the previous Masterclass with Pr. Nardone


Milton Erickson noted that depressive patients showed too much interest in dark thoughts and painful feelings, through too much introspection, all of which only aggravated the depressive state. It was important to him to create a context in which the patient would be inclined to turn his attention to the external world rather than to his internal reality. Thus, he sent his clients to climb the mountain of Squaw Peak early in the morning to admire the sunrise over the Arizona desert, or he sent them to discover the impressive number of species of desert plants in the botanical garden of Phoenix.
According to the World Health Organization, depression affects 3% of the world's population. It is the cause of 850,000 suicides a year worldwide. It could well become the world's leading cause of disability, ahead of cardiovascular disease.
Questions relating to anxiety disorders such as panic attacks, or obsessions will also be the focus of Professor Giorgio Nardone's full attention during this Masterclass.
Also, the processes developed in brief Strategic Systemic therapy will be approached and deployed around inventive communication tools such as metaphors, therapeutic prescriptions and reformulation in the service of depressive symptoms and anxiety disorders.

You will also attend the presentation of cases treated live by Professor Nardone.
