Episode #25 It’s Not All in Your Head: The Immune System and Mental Health Connection
We often take good health for granted until we are forced to pay attention due to illness, disease, or injury. In this episode of Therapeutic Perspective Podcast, Shonda talks with Dr. Marie Cross of Penn State University, whose work focuses on psychoneuroimmunology (the connection between the immune system and mental health for those of us not up on our Latin). Dr. Cross shares how we can encourage our clients (and ourselves) to live a more well-rounded, healthy lifestyle, as well as some practical, evidence-based tips to lower our stress and inflammatory response and boost our overall well-being.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the way the body responds to stress.
  2. Analyze the research being conducted to uncover the connection between chronic stress and inflammation
  3. Identify the difference between chronic stress and acute stress and their effects in the body
  4. Describe to clients why stress management is important to keeping other biologicals systems functioning properly.
