Children are brought in with symptoms of ADHD, clients with addictions struggle to gain control of themselves, and others suffer with physical complaints in addition to mental health issues. It’s frustrating when traditional talk therapy is not quite enough to break through and it feels like something else is needed to meet your treatment goals. That missing piece you’re looking for? It’s here – the mind-body connection. Kristen Allott is a naturopathic physician specializing in alternative and nutritional approaches to mental health disorders, and she is here to help you bring this missing piece to your clients. Imagine an increase in your client’s energy and mental clarity, allowing them to be more engaged in the therapeutic process. Simplify sessions when you readily have dozens of effective, simple strategies at your fingertips that enhance and complement your current treatment interventions. Feel your confidence improve when you identify nutritional deficiencies that contribute to anxiety, anger, depression, PTSD or ADHD. Conference Objectives are: • Articulate which nutrients are beneficial for reducing symptoms of anxiety, anger and depression. • Assess clients’ potential nutritional deficiencies that could be negatively affecting their mental health. • Communicate the potential complications of combining nutritional supplements and • psychotropic medications as related to clinical treatment. • Analyze the impact of fats and proteins on clients’ mental and physical health. • Determine when and how to refer clients to Complementary and Alternative Medicine providers. • Incorporate complementary strategies to help improve your clients’ energy and mental clarity. • Identify physiological causes of fatigue, depression, and anxiety to improve treatment outcomes. • Differentiate between mental illness versus nutritional and hormonal imbalances as it relates to clinical practice. • Distinguish symptoms of nutritional deficiencies to inform the clinician’s choice of treatment interventions. • Integrate holistic assessment and treatment interventions to improve client level of functioning. • Assess diet, exercise, and sleep in session without shaming a client. • Evaluate how improved nutrition can improve therapeutic outcomes for clients with ADHD, anxiety, depression, addictions, and other mental health disorders.

Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits (Dec 12, 2019)
Dec 12, 2019 | Contact Hours 6.00 | USD $230 | Phoenix, Arizona
Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools & Strategies Specific to Patient Deficits is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Dec 12, 2019 at Four Points by Sheraton Phoenix North, Phoenix, Arizona, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 contact hours. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Speech-Language Pathologists • Certified Brain Injury Specialists • Recreational Therapists Course Description: Neuroanatomy is admittedly complex and overwhelming. Clinicians working in rehabilitation are faced with growing caseloads, diminished resources/reimbursement, and increasingly medically complex patients with the expectation of improving outcomes and reducing length of stay. Honing knowledge of clinically-relevant neuroanatomy and neuropathology can predict dysfunction and intuitively create a scaffold for assessment and treatment even before meeting the patient. Predetermining potential deficits leads to a more tightly defined diagnostic battery and expedites treatment formulation. By deducing the patient’s experience, the clinician can also prepare for behavioral barriers to engagement and understand the healing process with greater compassion. In this one-day seminar, participants will learn intermediate level neurophysiology as it relates to cognitive-linguistic skills and behavioral control, as well as explore mindfulness techniques for stress reduction. The overlying foci of the course are to arm treating professionals with an improved clinical eye, predicting dysfunction, and expedite the pathway to treatment. Course content will also include patient-focused educational materials for stroke and traumatic brain injury ready to utilize by treating practitioners. Objectives: • Categorize the anatomy and function of lobes of the brain as they apply to behavioral control. • Characterize the neurophysiology of memory and effect of fear/anger upon new learning and memory. • Analyze the effect of traumatic and non-traumatic injuries upon cognitive centers. • Connect neurotransmitters with the communication system within the brain. • Evaluate the optic system and lesion locations that affect engagement and accuracy in therapy. • Recommend simple neuroanatomy-based techniques to rapidly de-escalate stress for patients and caretakers. • Assess neuro-behavioral barriers that impact new learning.
