108 - Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health

Strategies to Enhance Mood and Well-Being

If we are what we eat, then beyond the mind–body connection there’s also a food–mind–body connection. This workshop will explore how the latest nutritional research can inform your psychotherapeutic practice, how diet can affect mood, and the links between depression, inflammation, and cognitive function.

You’ll explore how to: 

  • Engage and motivate your clients for change while providing them with a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of good nutrition, food preparation, and mindful eating 
  • Assess the conflicting research and differing recommendations about nutritional practices and alternatives to medicines that foster mental health 
  • Determine the benefits, risks, and deficits of a variety of popular diet types, from carnivore to vegan, depending on the needs of a given client 
  • Foundational nutrients for mental health 

Leslie Korn, PhD, MPH, specializes in integrative medicine and nutrition for mental health, and in the treatment of trauma and chronic physical illness. She’s the author of Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health: A Complete Guide to the Food-Mood Connection, Rhythms of Recovery: Trauma, Nature and the Body, Natural Woman, Eat Right Feel Right, and The Good Mood Kitchen.
