Karen Kinman – Nutrition and Complementary Therapies in Mental Health and Illness


Karen Kinman, Ph.D., RN, LMFT integrates her clinical and educational experience into a collaborative practice as a medical family therapist, working with individuals, couples, and families experiencing chronic illness, cancer, and pain.

After working as a registered nurse for over 30 years, she received her Ph.D. in family therapy from Texas Woman’s University. She also holds a master’s degree in medical biology/nutritional science. She has advanced training in hypnosis and has been a therapeutic touch practitioner for over 38 years.

Topic for May 4, 2018: Integrative Medicine in Mental Health.
Therapists, like physicians, have clients who are using alternative or complementary therapies to improve their physical and mental health. Integrative medicine takes a comprehensive and holistic approach to health and illness, in an environment of compartmentalized and fragmented healthcare delivery.

This talk will present research in nutrition and supplementation, how the process of inflammation relates to mental health and illness, as well as evidence-based treatments of therapeutic touch and homeopathic medicine. Participants will gain knowledge on how to assess client’s practices and beliefs, and know when the use of complementary therapies may or may not be useful.
