Looking back at well-attended DEGAM congress in Berlin

On the yearly Congres DEGAM this year visited by almost 1000 German GP’s, Professor Dr. Achim Mortsiefer from university Witten/Herdecke presented with Dr. Karolien van den Brekel in a workshop about the first experiences with Positive Health in Germany.

Participants were curious about… how to apply Positive Health into practice. The take home messages were that the tool is very practical, to apply the vision of salutogenises. The tool is covering all aspects of life, helpful to support people towards a next small step and also gave insight about our own health and focus. Positive Health supports the paradigm shift that as professionals we don’t need to fix problems, but empower people towards what is of meaning for them.

Professor Dr. Achim Mortsiefer shared his experiences in practice and for which target groups he uses Positive Health. Also plans for a feasibility study were shared.
