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 what integrative medicine looks like in a mental health practice, presenting research in nutrition and supplementation, how the process of inflammation relates to mental health, and introduces the therapist to complementary therapies which have evidence-based research behind them.
