The Relational Human Body... Dr Adeniyi-Jones at Attachment & Arts Conference (2020)

21 January 2020

Key Note Speaker Dr Adeniyi-jones will be presenting 'The Relational Human Body' at the 2020 Attachment & the Arts conference on 14th November...

The BAAT series of ‘Attachment and the Arts’ conferences aims to explore art therapy through the lens of attachment theory and related research. The10th ‘Attachment and the Arts’ conference will focus on research developments in understanding the ‘bio’ element in the psycho-bio-social framework applied to Attachment Theories with a keynote presentation by Dr Rodney Adeniyi-Jones on the relational human body.


Dr Adeniyi-Jones’s presentation at the International Practice/Research conference in July 2019 was described by many delegates as "inspirational, introducing knowledge from the field of functional medicine which relates directly to our therapeutic practice"...

For this keynote speech, Dr Adeniyi-Jones will develop the theme on the body/mind connections and how this starts at a cellular level. He will introduce some of the evidence from the placebo effect and draw out implications on how the mind affects the body.

The impact of stress on mental and physical health is now well evidenced but so is the positive impact of relational connections. Dr Adeniyi-Jones will reflect on how the developing field of functional medicine could be integrated toward improving service users’ physical and emotional wellness.

Dr Rodney O. C. Adeniyi-Jones graduated as a multiple prize-winner from the medical school of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (Dublin) in 1975 and was admitted to membership of the Royal College of Physicians in the UK in 1978. He trained in hospital-based internal medicine and Endocrinology until 1986, when he left Hospital Medicine to study homoeopathy, bioresonance, nutritional and herbal medicine, manual medicine, and other aspects of Functional and Integrated Medicine. Since 1987 he has been in clinical practice using orthodox and complementary diagnostic methods and applying treatments that are predominantly based on functional enhancement rather than on drugs. In recent years the elements of mind-body medicine and spirituality have expanded substantially in his practice. This practice has grown steadily, fuelled by referrals from satisfied patients, and it now attracts patients from many parts of the world. In addition to membership of the Royal College of Physicians, Dr Adeniyi-Jones is a member of the American College of Advancement in Medicine, the Institute of Functional Medicine, the British society of Integrative Medicine and the British Society of Environmental Medicine.
