In this interview I talk with renowned psychiatrist and Three Principles practitioner Dr Bill Pettit on the nature of mental health and well-being and why all trauma, anxiety and so called mental disroders share one simple, yet widely misunderstood, cause and one practical solution.
Dr. Pettit has taught the Nature of the Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought as the cornerstone of his psychiatric practice since 1983. As of Nov. 1, 2015 he will be practicing psychiatry part time in a setting that will be supported by easily access of his patients to the DVDs and books by Sydney Banks. He will also continue to teach the Principles in seminars; graduate courses, residential programs for individuals, families and small groups; and via phone consultations.
A graduate of Creighton University, Omaha, NE and the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Chicago, IL, Dr. Pettit completed his psychiatric residency at the Philadelphia Naval Regional Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA. He is board-certified in Psychiatry, Adolescent Psychiatry, Geriatric Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine. He is also certified in Addiction Medicine.
Presently, Dr. Pettit holds an appointment as Adjunct Professor in the Graduate College at Siena Heights University. Formerly, Dr. Pettit held an appointment as Associate Professor of Behavioral Medicine and Psychiatry at West Virginia University (WVU) and was the Medical Director of the Sydney Banks Institute (later renamed the WV Initiative for Innate Health) at WVU. Previously Dr. Pettit held an appointment as Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Des Moines, Iowa Osteopathic School of Medicine.
Dr. Pettit is a recognized educator in the Three Principles intervention, and has presented at many national and international conferences and consulted to numerous clients both nationally and internationally. He was certified by Sydney Banks as a teacher of the Three Principles
