Jerrod Brown, PhD, presents a live professional training program on Chronic Low-Grade Inflammation: Implications for Mood, Behavior, Cognition, and Physical Health.

Inflammation occurs when one’s body attempts to neutralize potential threats (e.g., infections, toxins, and injuries) against its survival through the release of chemicals within the immune system. Although this is critical to survival, the experience of low-grade inflammation for extended periods of time can become harmful. In fact, chronic low-grade inflammation can contribute to deleterious outcomes, including obesity, accelerated aging, the onset of a wide range of diseases, and mental health problems.

Developed for professionals, this training explores the consequences of chronic low-grade inflammation on mood, behavior, cognition, and physical health. Relevant topics covered will include the impacts of stress on the body, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, toxic stress exposure, trauma, HPA axis dysfunction, and stress management. Empirically based research findings will be highlighted throughout this training.
