In assisting children, adolescents and adults of all ages, it is imperative to include the mind-body connection with the latest research and clinical correlates available in trauma and development literature. We will look at the commonly seen medical & psychiatric conditions and invisible disabilities in the general population, twice-exceptional and learning asynchronies that are evident in all communities though often unrecognized.  Integrative approaches to treatment including lifestyle changes, multi-sensory needs for learning and natural options will be reviewed.  

Learning Objectives:
1. Assess from a comprehensive bio-psycho-socio-cultural, PNEI (psychoneuroendoimmunology) developmental perspective with clients
2. List three characteristics of Adrenal Fatigue/hypo-thalamic-pituitary/HPA Dysregulation and its prevalence in our society
3. Describe three options of using holistic approaches for resolving trauma and dysregulation of the physiology in treatment
4. Practice a mind-body technique that induces the relaxation response and mindfulness
5. List three ways how conventional approaches in medicine differ from an integrative perspective in helping the whole person
