Workshop 6 (sold out)
Prescribing Food: Can Diet Interventions Reduce Symptoms in Children With Mental Illness?

What advice is good advice when it comes to dietary interventions for children and adolescents? This Workshop looks at basic brain nutrition and how it can be achieved through diet; and at the growing evidence, positive and negative, for several common dietary interventions for children and adolescents with mood disorders, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders. There is a critical need for clinicians to become familiar with the data for dietary interventions because their use has become prevalent among families. Develop strategies to discuss these interventions with patients and families, and receive handouts that can aid in dietary intervention consultations with families.
