Focuses on Lifestyle Changes vs. Drugs for Successful Treatment of Children and Adolescents
Identifying the Causes to Remove the Symptoms
Greensboro, NC – Successfully treating the estimated one out of five American children with mood or behavioral disorders through lifestyle changes and psychotherapy rather than suppressing the symptoms with drugs is the focus of the 16th Annual Conference of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry (ISEPP) on November 1-3 at the Greensboro Embassy Suites.
Parents and teachers as well as health care professionals are encouraged to register for the three-day conference featuring pediatric mental health experts including eminent doctors, best-selling authors, educators, youth advocates and psychiatric survivors. Presenters will share their triumphs treating troubled children and adolescents through nonmedical approaches such as nutritional analysis, behavior modification, psychotherapy and support groups.
Triad-based pediatrician Bose Ravenel, MD is one of the keynote speakers sharing his remarkable results researching the “why vs. the what” of his young patients behavioral and medical conditions. His inspiring successes include treating children with chronic conditions like migraine headache, abdominal pain, developmental delays, and even the impulsivity and inattentiveness associated with the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD. Dr. Ravenel will relate how his patients have overcome symptoms through diet and lifestyle changes rather than relying upon prescribed drugs with their negative side effects.
The ISEPP Conference begins the full day Friday Nov. 1 with registration at 7:30 am, and continues all day Saturday with lunch included on both days. Sunday’s session is a morning program on Open Dialogue, a non-medical approach to helping adolescents experiencing early psychosis, and is sponsored by the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care.
