Dr. Kradin will share his findings on the healing power of the placebo. He will discuss the scientifically proven mind/body connection demonstrated by placebos, and look at the ways they can enhance or retard medicinal and mental health therapy.
Dr. Richard Kradin is one of the countries’ foremost experts in mind-body medicine, a research immunologist, Jungian analyst, former Research Director of the Harvard Medical School Mind/Body Medical Institute, and the author of The Placebo Response.
