CPD Opportunities

 

At ARCH, we believe that our therapists should continually improve their knowledge and understanding of the industry, and keep abreast of the latest developments in techniques and technology. That’s why we insist on 30 hours of Continued Professional Development every year as part of our membership criteria.

To help our members achieve this, we host a range of CPD events, including our annual conference. We are also pleased to pass on details of other CPD events that we think may be relevant and interesting to our members.

 

Upcoming CPD events

 

 

The Fundamentals of SIBO - online

Nirala Jacobi

"Because small intestinal bowel overgrowth is such a tricky presentation we have a course dedicated to giving you a thorough understanding of what to do and when for these people. Essentially, SIBO is not really a specific condition. It is set of circumstances where organisms not typically resident in the small intestine, usually migrants from the colon, begin to proliferate there and cause symptoms."

"A rare opportunity to fully dissect the human form. Led by Julian Baker, one of the Europe’s leading experts on connective tissue function and dissection, this is a remarkable series of workshops. It will be open only to qualified bodyworkers and allied health professionals or those with a relevant qualification."

Nutritional Psychiatry - September 20th & 21st, 2019

Rethinking the Role of Food, Nutrients & Microbes in Mental Health

"The role of nutrition in the prevention and management of mental illness has only very recently become widely appreciated with evidence quickly accumulating to support a crucial role of nutritional medicine in mental health care. This represents an important paradigm shift beyond the modest success of traditional pharmacological treatments. Research suggests that diet is an important modifiable risk factor for mental health and the first clinical trials of dietary interventions for mood, cognitive and behavioural disorders have recently been published. Food supplement-based interventions that address deficiencies or are used as monotherapies or pharmacological augmentation therapies are also becoming established. Mechanisms that underlie the nutrition-related pathophysiology of mental illness, including inflammation, oxidative stress, neuroplasticity, and the gut microbiome, are under investigation with translational science beginning to realize functional medicine-based assessments and personalised nutritional and lifestyle medicine interventions into clinical practice."

Intestinal Permeability Webinar - online

with Corene Humphreys ND, BHSc

To ensure you get reliable results we need to understand how the gut barrier actually works, how to accurately assess it and then when it’s not good, what to do to repair the dysfunctional barrier and/or absorptive function."
