What are Mind Body Approaches and Why do They Make so Much Sense for Anxiety, Depression and Other Stress Related Disorders





Description

Description: The distinction between mind and body is diminishing as we learn more from multiple disciplines, including medicine, epidemiology, psychology and social work. As such, the utility of interventions that are not exclusively cognitive offer clinicians and clients an opportunity to experience new improvements in the face of anxiety, depression and other stress related disorders, including trauma and PTSD. Seminar participants can expect to gain a deeper understanding of how stress and trauma impact functioning and the mechanics of mind body approaches (the how, what and why). Current research on mind body interventions for anxiety, depression and other stress related challenges will be reviewed to facilitate seminar participant's ability to consider the most impactful mind body approaches.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize mental and physical impacts of stress and trauma including heart rate variability (HRV), brain architecture and function, immune function and inflammation.
  2. Differentiate interventions that are cognitive vs. body based (somatic)
  3. Compare efficacy of Evidence-Based mind/body interventions to assist clients
