The Developmental Neurological Perspective on Neuroplastic Physical, Mental and Emotional Habit Patterns.
About The Conference
The structural underpinnings of cognitive and motor development form in early
childhood, as well as the potential pathogenesis of neurodevelopmental disorders. The first two year of life is the period when the greatest number and fastest development of neurological connections and pathways are created and formed. By age 6 ninety percent of our motor, sensory and processing neurology is completed. If not addressed facilitation or disruption of normal healthy neurological pattens previous to this juncture will cause the individual to create compensatory patterns and adaptive coping mechanisms for the rest of their lives. How these patterns are created and can be removed or reduced is important to the overall health of the individual.
Now more than ever, we need a whole new understanding of our relationship with food! The fields of eating psychology and nutrition are at a profound crossroads. Medical science has finally recognized the important role of diet in optimal health, yet something is clearly missing.
Obesity, overeating, body image concerns, emotional challenges with food, and diet-related health issues are with us more than ever. We have abundant access to nutrition information, but need to search long and hard for true healing wisdom. It's time for an approach that honors all of who we are as eaters - body, mind, heart and soul.
Join us for an exciting time together as we explore leading edge thinking in the fields of Eating Psychology, Nutrition, and Personal Transformation. Get inspired by over 35 speakers, from a variety of disciplines, who have something unique and innovative to share.
