ABOUT THIS AUDIO SERIES
After over twenty years of working in private practice with patients who have a wide range of disorders of gut-brain interaction and other mind-body disorders, Dr. Franklin has a solid understanding about how healing happens and how to facilitate it psychotherapeutically. She is ready and eager to share what she knows with you!
Learning how to heal your gut and body starts with an understanding of the role your nervous system, especially your Autonomic Nervous System, plays in the generation, perpetuation, and exacerbation of digestive and other symptoms. The five-part Brain-Gut Connection Audio Series offers you (and your parents or loved ones) an education in the mind-gut and mind-body connection. This is the essential information Dr. Franklin wishes she had had back when she was suffering from IBS.
By registering for the Brain-Gut Connection Webinar Series, you will gain access to five audio parts, each containing under an hour of material, presented in the following order:
Audio Part 1: Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)— To understand how your Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) works, you first need to know what it is and its parts. There is more to the picture than just the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems. Dr. Franklin will discuss the three components of the ANS.
Audio Part 2: Regulation & Dysregulation— The meat and potatoes of this series, this audio presentation explains how bodies function under conditions of healthy ANS regulation and offers a different way of thinking about IBS: IBS and other disorders of gut-brain interaction as well as mood-related or psychological symptoms like anxiety and depression are likely just symptoms of one larger problem—dysregulation.
Audio Part 3: Stress Response— People with digestive issues are often told to reduce stress in their lives. Easier said than done when stress is a normal part of life. This audio part addresses the relationship between stress and your body, specifically your gut, to help you to work with your ANS and body to promote healing given your body’s natural, normal stress responses.
Audio Part 4: Trauma— If Audio Part 2 is your meat and potatoes, Audio Part 4 is your serving of veggies, and it’s important to eat your veggies. Trauma is a sexy topic in the field of medicine and psychology right now and is highly relevant to IBS and other digestive (and non-digestive) symptoms. In this audio presentation Dr. Franklin offers a broader definition of trauma and explains how the undigested, unmetabolized experiences in your life may relate to your digestive dysfunction.
Audio Part 5: Putting Parts 1-4 Together and Intro to Healing— In this audio part Dr. Franklin discusses what healing means when it comes to IBS and other DGBI/mind-body symptoms. The information contained in Parts 1 through 4 will be put together in a new way as she offers an overview of the healing process.
