Description/Abstract: HBS Colloquium: The Undivided Self: Psychosocial Unity & Its Role in Education & Health, with Ted Dimon, Thursday, 11/29, 3:45-5pm
Theodore Dimon is the founder and director of The Dimon Institute in New York City. The Institute is based on Dr. Dimon's pioneering work in a new field: the study of the human mental and physical "operating system" as a holistic entity and how it works in activity. Based on a multi-disciplinary approach that includes work in neuroscience, anatomy, evolution, physiology, psychology, philosophy and mindfulness, Dimon's work provides a groundbreaking view of human functioning and behavior leading to new foundational principles applicable in the fields of health, education, and child development.
Dr. Dimon received both master,ís and doctorate degrees in education from Harvard University and is an internationally renowned teacher of mind/body disciplines. He has written several books, including Anatomy of the Moving Body, The Body in Motion, Your Body, Your Voice, The Elements of Skill, and The Undivided Self. He lectures internationally and is an adjunct professor in the Clinical Psychology Department at Teachers College, Columbia University where he teaches a course on mind/body unity and its applications in education and health.
