Educational Objectives: After attending this intermediate level program in full, participants will be able to:

- Recognize symptoms that warrant a medical referral.
Description of Program: The gut-brain connection is a buzz notion that many are beginning to recognize as important in the world of psychology. The concept of how diet and the microflora in our digestive tract affects neurotransmitters is emerging science that may undeniably change the current treatment paradigm. At this point however, discussing digestive complaints in a mental health setting may seem uncomfortable. This seminar will provide those in the mental health field the tools needed to talk about how diet and digestive health can impact one’s wellbeing and will also provide safe and effective lifestyle and dietary changes that can make an impact. This seminar will also teach participants the most common digestive signs and symptoms that warrant a medical referral.
