Clinical Application of Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, and Somatic Therapies in the Treatment of PTSD and Complex Trauma
Trauma disrupts every aspect of a patient’s life, and the rhythms that govern biological, physiological, and psychological wellbeing. Many integrative practitioners see patients who suffer from some form of post-traumatic stress disorder or complex trauma, chronic physical and mental health issues that arise because of traumatic events. But what role can a physician play in restoring balance to their patient’s life, and how can they make quick and skillful connections with their patients’ needs and offer integrative mind/body methods that they can rely upon?
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Identify the cause of PTSD and complex trauma to select appropriate treatment
• Understand the components of comprehensive case review and ongoing patient assessment
• Navigate challenges with program adherence for trauma patients
• Identify detailed therapeutic goals and stage-based treatment plans
• Incorporate nutrition, physical activity, stress management, herbal remedies, and other therapies in to patient practice
