  • Discuss the body’s “stress system,” the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis, and outline clear strategies for treating stress-driven hormone imbalances.
  • Describe recent research which completely changes the way we need to think about stress and its effect on our physical and mental health.
  • Summarize the plethora of natural supplements that may be used for anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues and if holistic approaches are right for your clients.
  • Explain the Cytokine (Inflammatory) Theory of Depression and ways to keep inflammation in check to improve both our mental and physical health.
  • Evaluate the benefits of increased brain-derived neurotrophic factors (fertilizer for the mind) and how to increase neuroplasticity, which helps with healing, learning, and mood.

Workshop Description:

We encourage our clients to participate in behavioral strategies for their mental health (diet, exercise, social support, mindfulness, laughter, etc.), but have you wondered what the recent research says about why these things work? This workshop will discuss the latest research and strategies for taking a more holistic approach to mental and physical health. Understanding the mind-body connection is truly the wave of the future for therapists, and it's about time mainstream medicine recognizes the importance! If you want to learn more about where healthcare is headed as well as some amazing strategies for increasing mind-body health, this is the workshop for you!
