Counselling and the Gut Microbiome: Part 2

View

Welcome to Edition 290 of Institute Inbrief! In our previous edition we proposed the radical idea (to some) that a new paradigm for mental health helping is emerging: the gut affects our psychological health as much as psychological health influences our physical (gut) health. In this edition’s featured article we focus on how counsellors can help clients improve their gut health and thus reduce or even eliminate many mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression.

  • MBCT: A Look at the Mechanisms of Action
  • A Case for Solutions When Working with the Elderly
