Recurring Event Event Series: Alsana CE Webinars

Alsana CE Webinars

January 31 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST

Tuesday, January 31, 9:00 AM PT / 11:00 AM CT/ 12:00 PM ET

Abstract:

Without balanced nutrition and food flexibility, the brain cannot adequately communicate with the rest of your body. Among other things, this greatly affects changes in behavioral health. The theme of food flexibility can be applied to fit the needs and diagnoses in behavioral health; mental health, substance use disorders, and eating disorders. Behavioral health is positively impacted when we can neutralize how we see food, use a non-diet approach, and learn how to eat without judgment.  This presentation will identify how each diagnosis can benefit from nutrition intervention, balanced eating, and nutrient rehabilitation, all within the lens of focusing on food flexibility. We will also explore the different aspects of food flexibility and how it can be applied to behavioral health.

Objectives:

– Identify what food flexibility is and how it can be applied differently within the different behavioral health diagnoses

– Define nutrition psychiatry and outline the necessary nutrients for brain function and neurotransmitter production

– Explain the connection between food and mood in relation to the neurotransmitters

– Define different dietary approaches to help with mental health and mood stabilization

Abstract:

Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) is an evidence-based practice in eating disorder treatment. CFT offers skills and strategies for reducing self-criticism and shame. Virtual care presents a unique challenge when utilizing this treatment model. The CFT skills and strategies assist clients in learning how to build self-compassion and receive it from others. We will focus on helping clients develop more self-compassion in their early recovery process while completing treatment virtually.

Objectives:

– Define self-compassion and understand the difference between self-compassion and self-esteem

– Identify myths of self-compassion and the aspects of self-compassion

– Identify three ways to teach/utilize these components virtually
