Recorded Webinars
Stress Solutions for Today's Dietitian Part 1
In this 1 CEU recorded webinar, Dr. Jo®, PhD, RDN, discusses the science of stress—what happens during the stress response and how it affects or influences both health and personal decisions. To make this program more practical, Jo asks you to identify one thing (“stressor”) that causes you great stress. Then, using some common issues as examples, she helps us to uncover what the real issues are behind our stress (it’s rarely what we think it is). View Purchasing Options and Register Now »

Stress Solutions for Today's Dietitian Part 2
In this 1 CEU recorded webinar, Dr. Jo®, PhD, RDN, helps us realize that both real and imaginary situations can cause stress—leading to both short-term and long-term physiological changes in the body including increases in blood pressure, blood glucose, and weight. Stress also leads to an increase in unhealthy behaviors including sleep loss and self-medicating in the form of tobacco, alcohol, and food. Therefore, it's imperative for registered dietitians to be able to evaluate stress in themselves and their clients, offer stress management strategies, and know when to refer to a mental health specialist.
