Fantastic new insights and techniques into working with patients who are depressed presented in down to earth, understandable language.

No other course of post-graduate training has influenced and changed my clinical practice more than studying for the Human Givens (HG) Diploma. It’s changed the way I think about, and approach, healthcare.

Dr Grahame Brown

This course was the most stimulating, thought-provoking and exciting learning experience I have ever had. As well as being continually stretching and enriching, it was always great fun. The teaching model of the diploma is rare in that it suits all different learning styles.
