Biological Models for Suicide Prevention

A Course by James Greenblatt, MD (2 Hours)
Suicide is the observable result of what is often a complex array of problems.  Strong scientific evidence suggests that suicide risk is moderated by underlying biochemical abnormalities and environmental factors, which together can impact brain structure and function. Brain alterations that accrue as a result can place an individual along a path towards tragedy.  In being a phenomenon that science has shown to involve myriad endogenous and exogenous factors, however, suicidality – and psychiatric disorders that confer increased risk – invites an integrative approach that may offer at-risk patients the very best opportunity for recovery.

This three-module course will introduce an integrative model for suicide prevention, one in which the concept of suicidality as the result of underlying biochemical, nutritional, genetic, and environmental factors is explored.  Research illustrating the benefits of nutritional supplementation to mitigate risk factors will be presented; evidence-based interventions will be described; and a treatment approach centered upon objective biologic measurement and a concept of biochemical individuality will be presented.

Functional & Integrative Medicine for ADHD *

A Course by James Greenblatt, MD (3 Hours)
4.0 CME credits
Scientific evidence confirms ADHD to be a neurologic, brain-based disorder represented by numerous biological abnormalities.  What is observable as atypical behavior is merely the tip of an iceberg that extends down to an individual’s unique biochemical makeup. Certain nutritional imbalances, which can profoundly impact cognition and behavior, are significantly correlated with this common disorder. Health-care practitioners, however, often overlook diet, micronutrient status, and individual biochemistry in ADHD treatment and assessment.

Fortunately, addressing nutritional imbalances with an integrative treatment plan has proven effective in treating ADHD.  This three-module course will introduce Dr. Greenblatt’s breakthrough Plus/Minus plan for ADHD and provide a comprehensive overview of the biochemistry ‘beneath’ the disorder.  Dietary interventions and augmentation strategies for the mitigation of specific nutrient deficiencies will be reviewed, as well as recommendations for going “beyond biochemistry” to enhance treatment outcomes.
