The Rome Foundation Basic Skills Training in Psychogastroenterology

Learn about the emerging field of psychogastroenterology and how brain-gut psychotherapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and gut-directed hypnotherapy, can improve outcomes and quality of life for many patients with chronic GI disorders.
The Psychogastroenterology Basic Skills workshop will provide mental health practitioners with a foundation for working with patients with Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI), such as irritable bowel syndrome, functional dyspepsia, and functional heartburn. Psychological processes play a key role in the development and maintenance of DGBI and brain-gut psychotherapies are among the most effective treatments for patients. In this introductory workshop, international experts in psychogastroenterology will explain the biopsychosocial model for DGBI and discuss the structure and efficacy behind brain-gut psychotherapies for both adult and pediatric populations. Training will also include guidance on developing a successful integrated GI psychology practice.

About the Rome Foundation
The Rome Foundation is an independent not for profit 501(c) 3 organization that provides support for activities designed to create scientific data and educational information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI). Our mission is to improve the lives of people with DGBI.

Over the last 19 years, the Rome organization has sought to legitimize and update our knowledge of the DGBIs. This has been accomplished by bringing together scientists and clinicians from around the world to classify and critically appraise the science of gastrointestinal function and dysfunction. This knowledge permits clinical scientists to make recommendations for diagnosis and treatment that can be applied in research and clinical practice.
