Psychotherapy typically looks at past and present life experiences and situations to diagnose and treat every mental illness from anxiety to schizophrenia. We rely heavily on self-report from our clients and diagnose them based on criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
However, we now know the body and the brain are connected and both impact the other. We know that what appears as a mental health issue may in fact be an issue with the client’s gut function, inflammation, blood sugar regulation, hormones, vitamin deficiencies, and more.
In this 2-hour continuing education web conference, Vicki Steine, DSc, LCSW will discuss the connection between the brain and the body. She will explain how the internal and external environment can impact brain health and mental health throughout one’s lifetime.
