Norman Kim, PhD completed his B.A. at Yale University where he studied music and psychology, and was the recipient of a Mellon Fellowship for Research in Psychiatry. He completed his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at UCLA, where he was the recipient of an individual National Research Service Award from the National Institutes of Health to study the neurobiologic underpinnings of emotion recognition and understanding in Autism. Most recently he has been involved in a multi-site, longitudinal study of children and adolescents at risk for developing bipolar disorder.
In conjunction with his research, Norman has developed an expertise in treating and teaching about psychiatrically complex populations, multi-modal treatment, and diagnostic assessment. While rooted firmly in empirically supported approaches, he has incorporated practices emphasizing somatosensory integration and that draw from eastern and traditional medicine with our current knowledge of the neurobiologic and cognitive processes underlying anxiety, mood, trauma and eating disorders. He has endeavored to develop a clinical approach that focuses on the exploration of meaning as a path to healing and that honors an individuals’ own narrative and journey.
There is increased research about the efficacy of complementary and alternative medicine in the treatment of mental health issues. This research, specific to yoga, supplements, and essential oils will be reviewed and application to the field of eating disorder treatment will be explored. An experiential demonstration of “chair yoga” and breathing and meditation techniques will be provided at this event.
- Participants will be able to identify 2 evidenced based practices from complementary medicine that can be used as adjunctive treatment for patients with eating disorders
- Participants will be able to identify best practices for integrating yoga, meditation, and essential oils into treatment at various levels of care.
- Participants will demonstrate knowledge of basic deep breathing techniques and leave with ability to implement in sessions with patients with anxiety and eating disorders.
This course will be offered at an intermediate level and is appropriate for those mental health clinicians (Psychologists and Therapists), medical providers and registered dietitians with a focus area of eating disorders.
