Wellness Tourism: Wellness tourism is a segment of the health tourism industry that is growing at a tremendous rate. What makes wellness tourism different? Wellness tourism is more than just going to a spa for a massage or a facial. It’s about transformative experiences that feed your mind, body and spirit. Maybe it’s sitting quietly while gazing over grassy fields, or visiting an Ayurvedic retreat, or immersing yourself in the experience of an Onsen. Wellness activities are regenerative, restorative, and proactive in supporting healthy living. Wellness tourism is experiential and personal. Participants will gain an understanding of the various aspects of wellness tourism, its evolution and how to engage in this expanding area. Developed by Jennifer Aarons Teaching Specialist Hospitality, Tourism and Event Management Stockton University

Spirituality is an important part of a person’s complete self. The belief and faith of “something bigger than oneself” is a crucial element in hope and healing. It is important to understand spirituality and the role it has in mental health, addition and healthcare. Providers in mental health, social services and community health would benefit from using comfortable language, knowledge and practices that incorporate spirituality. Our instructor’s interfaith approach is designed to be inclusive and ultimately assist clients in healing.

Doctor, doctor thyself? Mental Health, Emotional Wellbeing, and Self-care for Mental Health Providers is an important process which can be easily overlooked while caring for others. Quite often can be taboo discussion amongst colleagues. While providers know the effects of physical/mental/emotional/spiritual wellbeing on health, some find it difficult to prioritize their own care. This workshop aims to help mental health professionals identify their own physical symptoms, behaviors in the workplace, and learn useful tools beyond the typical mainstream stereotypes. Create a lifestyle of health and wellness that balances caregiving and caring for the self. Instructor, Jennifer Vazquez, LCSW, will discuss the mental health needs of providers in a sensitive and productive manner that promotes self-care, supports and recognizes the human aspect of the field, and managing their own life stressors while maintaining their roles as providers.

Stockton’s new “Understanding the Spectrum of Eating Disordered Behaviors” Certificate Series, taught by Suzanne Rubinetti, LCSW, features five workshops to address the many aspects of clinical work within the eating disorders. Each workshop is 2.5 hours long, and will focus on various aspects of disordered eating, OCD, family/social dynamics, Orthorexia, and Intuitive Eating. Clinicians in this series will learn the definitions, clinical presentations of the spectrum of eating disorders (via DSM 5), and clinical treatment strategies. Participants will also hear case study examples, learn how to include CBT, exposure therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and mindfulness in treatment, and develop realistic recovery goals with clients. With many overlapping challenges in disordered eating and obsessive compulsive disorder, this series will begin with a 2-part “Eating Disorders & OCD” component which is required for completing the remaining sections of the program. Clinicians who do not complete the first two meetings will not be permitted to complete the series. This series is appropriate for all level clinicians working with both adult and adolescent populations.
  • Meeting 1 - Eating Disorders and OCD: Part 1 (4/26/24)
  • Meeting 2 - Eating Disorders and OCD: Part 2 (5/3/24) - Eating disorders and OCD are two extremely complicated illnesses and their symptoms often overlap. This two-part, lecture-based training will contain a comprehensive understanding of the overlap, and serve as mandatory “introductory workshops” for this certificate series. Participants will learn a broader understanding of the complexities in treating OCD co-occurring with eating disorders. Participants will also have a greater understanding of how to treat eating disorder symptoms, and identify important elements in a comprehensive treatment plan. Exposure therapy and desensitization will be discussed. Breakout discussion rooms, interactive exercises, role playing, and case material will be used to further increase learning. Please note: Attendance for the first two sessions (Eating Disorders and OCD Parts 1 and 2) will be required to complete the certificate program.

  • Meeting 3 - Orthorexia (5/17/24) - Orthorexia was defined in 1998, and means an obsession with proper or healthy eating. While it is not a DSM 5 diagnosed illness, in the last 5 years, the symptoms of orthorexia have surged and can have dangerous side effects. It is critical for clinicians to understand the complications of this disorder. In this course we will define what Orthorexia is and why it is such a complex disorder. Using lecture, case illustrations, video clips, role play and small group discussions we will look at the differences between orthorexia and other eating disorders and discuss treatment strategies.

  • Meeting 4 - Intuitive Eating (5/31/24) - Recently there has been an abundance of information on intuitive and mindful eating. The two are different and the learning process is challenging. Intuitive eating is a multi-layered practice that can only be successful if a detailed inquiry of an individual's "food story" is understood by the practitioner. This course will examine the process and participants will learn how to conduct a detailed food history with their clients as well as learn other useful skills. We will also explore the reasons why the development of intuitive eating is so challenging, and illustrate it using detailed case examples. This workshop will include lecture, interactive exercises on mindful eating, video clips and discussion.

  • Meeting 5 - Intergenerational Food Trauma (6/14/24) - Taking the time to understand the depth of historical traumas that have involved significant food and eating issues in the generations in a family provides critical information for the treatment of eating disorders. Conducting a detailed food inquiry and exploration of the food story through generations critically impacts treatment goals. This course will address sensitive topics such as genocide and long-term cultural/religious/family food behaviors resulting from surviving these traumatic events. In this workshop you will learn how to gather all the food history, important cultural information, and prepare realistic treatment goals.
