For more information regarding this CME/CE activity and to complete the CME/CE requirements and claim credit for this activity, visit:https://www.mycme.com/courses/how-to-manage-stress-mood-and-hormones-9448SummaryHormonal changes play a significant role in influencing mood and cognition. Fluctuations in hormone levels can impact neurotransmitter activity and neural circuits associated with mood regulation and cognitive function. For instance, during menstruation, pregnancy, menopause, and times of stress, hormone levels can fluctuate, leading to mood swings, irritability, anxiety, and cognitive changes.In this podcast/webcast episode, Dr. Gregory Mattingly and Dr. Vladimir Maletic discuss the impact of stress, hormones and mood, as understanding these hormonal influences is crucial for managing mood disorders, improving cognitive function, and promoting overall well-being.This podcast was recorded and is being used with permission of the presenters.Learning ObjectivesUpon completion of this activity, learners should be able to: Summarize the role of hormonal changes and their impact on mood and cognitionDiscuss recent developments that improve outcomes of hormonally triggered problems with mood or cognitionThis activity is accredited for CME/CE CreditThis activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the National Association for Continuing Education (NACE) and GlobalHealthXchange.

CME/CE Podcast: Broken or Resilient?
For more information regarding this CME/CE activity and to complete the CME/CE requirements and claim credit for this activity, visit:https://www.mycme.com/courses/exploring-the-depths-of-resilience-9449SummaryResilience, the ability to bounce back from adversity, is not solely determined by genetic factors but is heavily influenced by epigenetic mechanisms. Epigenetics can then influence DNA gene expression, playing a crucial role in shaping our resilience. It is known that while genetics provide a blueprint, our experiences and lifestyle choices can determine how those genes are expressed. However, neuroplasticity, the brain's remarkable ability to reorganize and adapt, underscores the potential for resilience to be cultivated and strengthened throughout life.In this podcast/webcast episode, Dr. Gregory Mattingly and Dr. Vladimir Maletic discuss the impact of resilience as well as strategies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, exercise, social support networks, and healthy lifestyle habits which have been shown to promote neuroplasticity and enhance resilience by positively impacting epigenetic processes. By understanding and leveraging these interconnected concepts, individuals can empower themselves to navigate life's challenges with greater resilience and adaptability.This podcast was recorded and is being used with permission of the presenters.Learning ObjectivesUpon completion of this activity, learners should be able to: Summarize how trauma and resilience impact epigenetics and neuroplasticityDiscuss clinical interventions and strategies to improve resilience within your practiceThis activity is accredited for CME/CE CreditThis activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the National Association for Continuing Education (NACE) and GlobalHealthXchange.
