This keynote address will provide an overview of the interdisciplinary view of the mind and mental health. Over 60,000 mental health providers have been asked about their formal education in these areas and less than 5% have had seminars defining these two basic aspects of psychotherapy. This presentation will offer a view based on science of the definition of the mind and well-being and explore ways in which brief therapy can foster rapid and lasting change.
