IPMT Brisbane

Escape the winter’s chill and join us in sunny Brisbane for a week of enlivening colleagueship and working together. The week is experiential and offers a jump out of the daily routine into a rejuvenating experience that includes movement, nature observation, case presentations and discussions, small group work, directed artistic work and evening lectures. Our conference week is led by Dr Michaela Glockler. Michaela is retiring as the head of the Medical Section next year, so this may be one of our last opportunities to welcome her Down Under and share her experiences and knowledge.  Michaela’s supporting faculty include: Dr Basil Williams (USA), Dr Ernst de Jong (Perth), Irmhild Kleinhenz (Melb), Julie Lovett (Syd),  Dr Lakshmi Prasanna (AU, India), Lisa Devine (Syd), Michael Kokinos (AU), Michelle Vette (NZ), Dr Simon Bednarek (Perth), Truus Geraets (USA).
The early registration deadline is coming up in a week and it would be a tremendous help for our planning with Emmanuel College (the venue) if you would let us know your intentions.

Workshop streams this year include:

  • Clinical Sessions
  • Body Work
  • Curative Education
  • Therapeutic Eurythmy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Introduction to Anthroposophic Nursing
