Our August guest was speaker: Ellen Barnett, MD, PhD, Director of Outreach and Program Development
Dr. Barnett has been practicing Family Medicine in Sonoma County since 1983. She is a Certified Balint Leader, working healthcare providers that explore the emotional aspects of provider-patient relations. She serves as Medical Director of the Integrative Medical Clinic of Santa Rosa.
She worked with the group on an exercise called:
Imagine YOU… as you want to be…feeling well, being healthier, being ready for what is important to you.
Imagine people talking about and moving toward WHY they want health and wellness, not repeatedly ‘failing’ to complete their lists of what they ‘should’ be doing.
Imagine YOU Mission
The mission of the Imagine YOU project is to offer people the opportunity to imagine and clarify WHY they want health. Individuals create their personal Image of Health and take it with them to remind them to take the small, successful steps needed to reach and maintain that vision.
