The Meadows is sponsoring a luncheon and lecture in Walnut Creek, California on Monday, November 5 presented by Dr. Jon G. Caldwell, Psychiatrist at The Meadows, on the topic of how childhood adversity influences health and wellbeing. It will be held at the Prima Ristorante 1522 N. Main Street from noon to 1:30pm. Registration is required by October 31, 2012.
In this presentation Dr. Caldwell will share his thoughts on how his clinical approach has become increasingly flavored by the teachings of the contemplative traditions and the practice of mindfulness meditation.
Dr. Caldwell will discuss his theoretical perspective, influenced during his Ph.D. graduate work at the University of California at Davis, where he researched how early childhood maltreatment and insecure attachment relationships affect cognitive, emotional, and social functioning later in life.
Dr. Caldwell, D.O., is a board certified psychiatrist specializing in the treatment of adults with relational trauma histories and addictive behaviors.
