LOCATION: CAPITOL ROOM
If we are what we eat, then beyond the mind-body connection there’s also a food-mind-body connection. This workshop will explore the latest nutritional research to inform psychotherapeutic practice and how diet can affect mood, as well as the links between depression, inflammation, and cognitive function.
You’ll learn how to:
- Provide your clients with a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of good nutrition, food preparation, and mindful eating
- Assess the conflicting research and differing recommendations concerning nutritional practices that foster mental health
- Determine the benefits, risks, and deficits of a variety of popular diet types, from carnivore to vegan, depending on the needs of a given client
