SUMMARY:
Dr. Christina Jagielski will present on gastrointestinal psychology and discuss the many factors that contribute to disorders of gut-brain interaction, communication strategies to help patients understand the role of the brain in GI functioning, and evidence-based treatments to improve GI symptoms and GI quality of life. The role of non-GI specific mental health providers for patients with GI conditions will also be discussed.

Participants will learn to identify at least 3 factors that may contribute to the development or exacerbation of GI symptoms, describe the primary treatments used in gut-brain psychotherapies, and identify strategies for GI-specific and non-GI specific mental health providers.

1 hour of free CE credit is available for MPA members who attend this presentation.
