Empowered Use, Health Consciousness and Prescription Drugs with Special Focus On Parents And The Workplace
If you are here for the first time, click here for the tour.
National data show prescription drug abuse is growing at rates that wellness/lifestyle practitioners can no longer ignore. Coaches and wellness coordinators can benefit from knowledge about prescription misuse in topical areas the presenter will discuss: neuroscience, motivators (pain, mood energy), at-risk populations, and policy as well as mind-body practices as antidotes to the growing epidemic. The presenter will share a presentation developed for Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and that participants can use in their own setting. This presentation has a focus on the workplace and working parents. As this is a relatively new topic not often discussed in wellness practice, participants will be asked to complete a brief follow-up survey asking about the relevance and utility of this topic to their work in the wellness profession.
