ESTABLISHING RESILIENCE IN CHILDHOOD
AS A FOUNDATION FOR LIFE

A TALK BY DR JAMES DYSON

TUESDAY 5TH MAY 19.30 AT IONA SCHOOL

Dr James Dyson is in great demand internationally within the anthroposophical movement and is currently teaching and facilitating on several professional anthroposophical training courses, spanning a wide range of medical, therapeutic and psychological themes. We are very privileged to be able to welcome him to the Iona School as part of our 30th birthday celebrations.

James originally studied medicine in London, qualifying as a medical doctor in 1975. Initially registering in general practice, he concurrently studied anthroposophic medicine, both in UK and Continental Europe. In 1979 he co-founded Park Attwood Clinic in Worcestershire, a residential and out-patient anthroposophic medical facility. His practice, which included general medicine and some psychiatry, continued for nearly 25 years.

During his long and varied carrier as an anthroposophic physician, James has also worked as a visiting doctor in Waldorf Schools and in several schools and residential communities for children and adults with learning disabilities.

Since leaving Park Attwood in 2003, James has furthered his long-standing interest in mental health and developmental psychology with formal postgraduate training, gaining a master’s degree in Psychosynthesis Psychology.

Having retired from formal medical practice in 2014, James continues to work in an advisory and consultative capacity for several educational facilities and is also extending his life-long involvement in adult education.

Please make every effort to attend what will be an enlivening and enriching talk which will touch the heart of our work here at the Iona School.
