Studies in neuroscience have uncovered a wide range of relationships between stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, the immune system, and gene expression. The interaction between all these factors has been illuminated by examining the effects of lifestyle factors on the incidence of health and psychological problems.
In this 2-hour continuing education web conference, Dr. John Arden will discuss the significant relationships between physical conditions and psychological issues. These include immune system function, stress, insecure attachment, anxiety, depression, poor nutrition, poor quality sleep, physical inactivity, and neurophysiological dysregulation.
Additionally, Dr. Arden will discuss how insecure attachment, deprivation, and child abuse contribute to anxiety and depression--complex health conditions that effect millions of people who seek psychotherapy. Attachment issues, neglect, and abuse have been found to contribute to mental health concerns in far more extensive ways then was previously believed.
