Learn to view eating (a self-regulated occupation) through the lenses of psychoneuroimmunology, which involves multiple gut-brain neurohormonal feedback loops of sensory enjoyment, positive social interactions, and the microbiome. Participants will learn to find “just-right” self-regulation approaches, evaluate developmental readiness, plan sound nutritional food-chains, and use family-focused reduction of mealtime stress to improve feeding dynamics.
