A New Paradigm in Treating Mental Disorders
We have all had clients who come into the office in a depressed or anxious state, and yet they cannot identify just what is bothering them. Children are brought in with symptoms of ADHD, suicidal ideation, or an eating disorder. Clients with addictions struggle to gain control of themselves. Many elderly clients have no energy or zest for life, and may appear to be suffering from dementia. Others are suffering with many physical complaints in addition to presenting with serious depression; and we have all seen those who have literally been anxious all their lives. Talking in these cases often does not produce the desired results, and both client and professional become frustrated.
In this dynamic seminar, Ms. Elizabeth Szlek, MA, LMHC, NCC, NTP, CGP, shares her decades of experience integrating nutrition into therapy, along with the cutting edge of nutritional research. Discover highly effective, non-pharmaceutical interventions for disorders such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, eating disorders, bipolar, and addictions. Walk away from this seminar with the knowledge and tools to approach these problems from a new perspective, and improve your therapeutic outcomes by incorporating this important mind-body connection.
