    Give Psychology a Chance: How the Gut Influences the Brain

    Tracy Thomas, MA, NTP, CGP

    Santa Barbara County Psychological Association

    April 12, 2019



    Description:

    This seminar will focus on the new body of medical literature showing poor gut health to be a causal factor in chronic mental health conditions such as anxiety and depressive disorders. Known as the gut-brain axis, researchers are finding that there is constant bi-directional communication not only from the brain down to the gut, but from the gut up to the brain. The collective landscape of the gut, including the trillions of microbes that live there, play an important role in the messages to the brain that directly affect mood and behavior.


    Topics include:

    ● How the gut communicates with the brain

    ● Conditions in the gut that impact mood

    ● How the food we eat changes messaging to the brain

    ● The role of the microbiome in anxiety and depressive disorders

    ● Ideal diet to optimize positive gut-brain communication

    ● How emotional states affect microbial messaging in a negative feedback loop


    Timed Outline:

    5:15-5:30pm – Greet, sign in, and socialize

    5:30-5:35pm – Introduction of speaker and opening remarks

    5:35-6:45pm – Presentation of topic (following the above description and objectives)

    6:45-7:00pm – Q&A/evaluations


    Course Objectives:

    1. Describe the medical literature showing a causal relationship between the gut and mood.

    2. Identify the underlying physiological conditions that trigger anxiety and depressive disorders.

    3. State dietary and lifestyle choices that increase beneficial gut-brain messaging.

    Description:


    The purpose of this workshop is to summarize the current knowledge base on the use and overuse digital devices by children, adolescents, and adults and the link to sleep issues, anxiety, and depression. Case vignettes will be utilized to illustrate the problem of digital overuse. Attention will be given to how a clinician can integrate an assessment of digital use into their intake interview and the use of self-report measures that address digital overuse.  The role of the clinician in evaluating digital overuse and developing specific interventions to support more healthy digital use balance will be reviewed.


    Timed Outline:


    5:15-5:30pm – Greet, sign in, and socialize

    5:30-5:35pm – Introduction of speaker and opening remarks

    5:35-6:45pm – Presentation of topic (following the above description and objectives)

    6:45-7:00pm – Q&A/evaluations


    Goals and Objectives:


    Attendees will be able to:

    1. Review research on the current use of digital devices amongst children, teens, and adults and the evidence of digital addictions.

    2. Describe case study vignettes that reflect digital overuse as a precursor to sleep problems, anxiety and depression.

    3. Review the importance of assessing digital use and real world/virtual world balance in intake interviews and self-report measures. Identify specific assessment tools to assess the severity of overuse.

    4. Identify interventions for developing balance in digital usage and determine which will be most effective for certain populations.
