First course of WBT

First course of WBT

The first introductory course on WBT has taken place in Venice (Italy) on March 17-18, 2017. Faculty included Giovanni A. Fava, Jess Wright, Chiara Rafanelli, Elena Tomba, Fiammetta Cosci and Jenny Guidi. Participants were from all over the world (from Europe to Iran, from Japan and China to the US). They had the opportunity to have the basic mechanisms of WBT explained and the new applications described. Giovanni Fava commented: “This has been the first time we attempted to systematically cover the assessment and treatment issues that characterize the WBT revolutionary approach. We are so far away from mainstream, dull psychiatry and we were afraid it was difficult to convey our novelties in a two day seminar. But our participants demonstrated us that it was possible and were eager to apply what they learnt at home.
