(PRWEB) December 11, 2014
Alastair Mordey, Programme Director of The Cabin will be joining Asia’s leading mental health professionals at the World Psychiatric Association Regional Congress 2014 in Hong Kong from December 12 – 14. The event will cover a diverse range of psychiatric topics and issues which illuminate the trends and clinical research development in mental health care and practice.
This year’s Congress is organised by the WPA in collaboration with the Hong Kong College of Psychiatrists. Since medical practices in Asian cultures have all along emphasized the importance of achieving harmony between humans and the environment, the theme of the event is “Yin and Yang of Mental Health in Asia – Balancing Polarities”. It will provide a platform for mental health professionals to share existing psychiatric practices and innovative models of psychiatric care, in an effort to balance the “Yin and Yang” of Western and Eastern Psychiatry.
Alastair will present aspects of The Cabin’s pioneering and highly effective Recovery Zones addiction treatment model – which is a combination of the best known addiction treatment methods – namely Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), 12 Steps and Mindfulness Meditation – that have been fine-tuned to combat addiction in a shorter time span than traditional methods.
Topic: “A combined Recovery Zones/CBT approach to the treatment of dual diagnosis in an inpatient rehabilitation”
Date: 14 December 2014 at 1:20 – 2:50pm
Venue: Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC)
The Recovery Zones model is used at both The Cabin’s inpatient rehab, The Cabin Chiang Mai and their newly opened outpatient clinic, The Cabin Hong Kong. It is an ‘all-addictions’ treatment model that works for both chemical (drug and alcohol addictions) and process addictions (sex, gambling, internet, etc.). It is the basis of The Cabin’s secular and culturally friendly programme, which includes relapse prevention therapy and dedicated aftercare, and draws clients from all over the globe.
