Promoting Whole-Person Wellness through Investigation of Lifestyle Interventions and their Impact on Mental Health

Whole-person wellness is becoming an integral part of behavior health. Research indicates a strong mind-body connection. This connection helps clients to understand the impacts of lifestyle choices. This is relevant when helping people to achieve optimal physical and mental health. Within this workshop, we will examine the impact of lifestyle choices on mental health. A variety of lifestyle choices (e.g. nutrition, physical activity) will be discussed and how they impact mental health, along with real life solutions to support your clients in achieving their best health. The workshop will include experiential practices, communication techniques, and discussion-based learning exercises. Upon completion of the workshop participants should be able to: Explain three lifestyle factors that have an impact on mental health; Describe three simple everyday habits that can be incorporated into your practice with clients; Describe two factors that impact motivation of an individual; Demonstrate at least one approach to help clients consider behavior change; and Evaluate your own health and well being and discover the impact it has on the people you work with.
