Nutritional Therapies for Psychological Symptoms Prof JULIA RUCKLIDGE

Free for ICP members and ICP students

9th June 2017 in Rotorua & 16th June 2017 in Christchurch 9.00am - 4.30pm Despite the advent of medications and other therapies over the last 50 years, the rates of mental illness have been on the rise rather than a decline. Over the last decade, scientists have been uncovering an uncomfortable truth: What we eat is affecting our mental health. In this workshop, Prof Rucklidge will discuss the data that describe an alarming picture of food choices serving as risk factors to all kinds of psychiatric problems. She will describe dietary patterns and food choices that have been supported by scientific evidence. She will then introduce the recent paradigm shift of using broad based micronutrients, probiotics and other nutrients like omega 3s to treat these challenges, reviewing the hypothesized mechanisms of action and the evidence to date. The talk will challenge our current treatment regime for mental disorders and suggest one alternative course of action. She will discuss practical ways that psychologists could implement this research into every day practice alongside psychological treatments.

Prof Julia Rucklidge Julia is a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. Originally from Toronto, Canada, she did her undergraduate training in neurobiology at McGill University in Montreal. She then completed a Master’s and PhD at the University of Calgary in clinical psychology followed by a two year post-doctoral fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. In 2000, she joined the Department of Psychology where she teaches child psychology in the Clinical Psychology Programme and introduced the topic of Mental Health and Nutrition into the wider psychology programme. Her interests in nutrition and mental illness grew out of her own research showing poor outcomes for children with significant psychiatric illness despite receiving conventional treatments for their conditions. In the last decade, she has been running clinical trials investigating the role of broad-spectrum micronutrients in the expression of mental illness, specifically ADHD, mood disorders, anxiety and stress associated with the Canterbury earthquakes. Julia has over 100 publications, has been featured in the media over 100 times including a cover story for the NZ Listener, and has given over 100 talks across the world on her work on nutrition and mental health. She is currently on the Executive Committee for the International Society of Nutritional Psychiatry Research. She was the recipient of the Ballin Award 2015 from the NZ Psychological Society, an award that recognises notably significant contributions to the development or enhancement of clinical psychology in Aotearoa New Zealand. She was also named in the top 100 Most Influential Women in New Zealand in 2015. Her 2014 TEDx talk https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=3dqXHHCc5lA has been viewed over 270,000 times. She is passionate about helping people find alternative treatments to medications for their psychiatric symptoms.
