Descripción del producto
To say this book is a complete guide is an understatement . . . Dr. Korn manages to offer every imaginable support one needs from peer-reviewed data validating her assertions to sample dialogues, case vignettes, goal setting procedures and essential outcomes. . . . The Appendices are a treasure trove in themselves with comprehensive resources, guidelines, recipes, a sample client intake form, food-mood diary, and lists of foods containing gluten, lactose, casein, dairy, corn and oh so much more. There's no doubt in my mind that this is the go-to textbook for clinicians wanting to bring awareness to food and its impact on their clients' mental health. . . . [T]his isn't the kind of book you read once and set on the shelf; rather, it's a companion to reference throughout the day working with clients, listening to friends and hearing your own body speak.-- (06/16/2016)

This easy-to-read guide is an invaluable resource for mental health professionals and is highly recommended.-- (06/01/2016)

Descripción del producto
Diet is an essential component of a client's clinical profile. Few therapists, however, have any nutritional training, and many don't know where to begin. In Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health, Leslie Korn provides clinicians with a practical guide to the complex relationship between what we eat and the way we think, feel, and interact with the world.
Where there is mental illness there is frequently a history of digestive and nutritional problems. Digestive problems in turn exacerbate mental distress, all of which can be improved by nutritional changes. It's not unusual for a deficit or excess of certain nutrients to disguise itself as a mood disorder. Indeed, nutritional deficiencies factor into most mental illness--from anxiety and depression to schizophrenia and PTSD--and dietary changes can work alongside or even replace medications to alleviate symptoms and support mental wellness.
Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health offers the mental health clinician the principles and practices necessary to provide clients with nutritional counseling to improve mood and mental health. Integrating clinical evidence with the author's extensive clinical experience, it takes clinicians step-by-step through the essentials for integrating nutritional therapies into mental health treatment. Throughout, brief clinical vignettes illustrate commonly encountered obstacles and how to overcome them

Dr.Korn has a long and unique background in this area and she shares her experience with what has worked to help those she has treated.
As a psychiatrist with forty years in the mental health field this book is the best I have read in teaching me how to use nutrition to improve patients mood and functional level. It is useful for mental health professionals and anyone who wants to feel better by learning how to eat more wisely based on their specific emotional needs.
I particularly liked the Chapter " Putting It All Together: Making Recommendations For Success". Much information is provided so it takes time to discern what works best. Nevertheless the material is so comprehensive it can be used for a tailor-made prescription.
I can recommend this book without reservations.
