The Cooking Show for Mental Health Professionals

This three-part, interactive course combines didactic modules and interactive “cooking show” modules which are designed to equip health care professionals with a toolkit of tips, recipes, and strategies to make the many connections between food and mental health.

  1. The first didactic module will address the scientific evidence supporting the benefits of certain foods to improve mood and the importance of the family dinner.
  2. The second didactic module will address foods that ease anxiety and ways to make the experience of eating with others relaxing and enjoyable.
  3. The third module will address the issue of hidden sugar in foods and discuss how you can address this with your patients. We will also talk about using storytelling at the table as a way to foster resilience and describe how therapy in the office can be a bridge to family dinners at home.

Course content is available upon registration. Attendees will complete the 3 course activities at their own pace then can maintain access to the materials for review until November 30, 2021.

Disclosure Information

In accord with the disclosure policy of McLean Hospital as well as guidelines set forth by the Accreditation Council on Continuing Medical Education, all people in control of educational content, including speakers, course directors, planners, and reviewers, have been asked to disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests of both themselves and their spouses/partners over the past 12 months, as defined below:                    

Commercial Interest

The ACCME defines a “commercial interest” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services, used on, or consumed by, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests. For more information, visit www.accme.org.

Financial relationships

Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit.  Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected.  ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.

Relevant financial relationships 

ACCME focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CME activity. ACCME has not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant.  Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.

Conflict of Interest

Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.

The following planners, speakers, and content reviewers, on behalf of themselves and their spouse or partner, have reported financial relationships with an entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services (relevant to the content of this activity) consumed by, or used on, patients:

Susan Sprich, PhD
Royalties (Co-Author): Oxford University Press
Royalties (Co-Edited Book): Springer
Honoraria (Associate Editor): Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT)

All other individuals including course directors, planners, reviewers, faculty, staff, etc., who are in a position to control the content of this educational activity have, on behalf of themselves and their spouse or partner, reported no financial relationships related to the content of this activity.
