This program will benefit LMFT, LPCC, LEP and LCSW licensees and pre licensees by improving the understanding of the way lifestyle, nutrition and stress impact mental health. Clinical skills gained include knowing evidence-based lifestyle changes to recommend to clients and support them in implementing that reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. Participants will learn up to date research on the biological underpinnings of mental health symptoms that they can discuss with clients, rather than relying on outdated biological concepts. Helping clients understand the role they can take in their own healing is empowering to them.
Workshop covers the complexity of causes of chronic illness as contrasted with acute illness, and how a systems-based approach recognizes and addresses these causes to restore health. Workshop goes into detail about the role of the HPA Axis, gastrointestinal system and microbiome in mood and anxiety symptoms, as supported by the published literature. Lifestyle and nutrition interventions are recommended in the workshop that reduce symptoms, as supported in the published literature.
1. Participants will learn the causal differences between acute and chronic illness
2. Participants will gain an understanding of the role of the HPA axis in creating symptoms and how they can correct these.
3. Participants will learn the role of the gastrointestinal tract and microbiome in inflammation and symptoms, and how they can promote gut health to improve mental health
