|related behaviors and disorders. The study is a quantitative
and qualitative study of clinically assessed individuals. The
quantitative research is a survey of the members of the AEC who
have undergone a clinical assessment with verification by sitting
on the St Mary’s Brisbane Panels. It looks at risk factors and
health related activities to explore the relationship of personality
to the actions and effects of these factors. The qualitative
case reports are on patients who have been fully investigated
medically, with a discussion of the medical presentations which
are due to the impact of the personality.
We will experience meditation and contemplation and discuss the
health benefits of these practices.
