What to Expect From The Monthly Food Allergy Counselor E-Newsletter



Have you subscribed to FAC's monthly e-newsletter yet?


If not, here's what you're missing out on - and what to expect (and NOT expect) from this monthly newsletter!

In addition to the newsletter section listed below, this monthly newsletter will share any important news related to navigating the social and emotional aspects of life with allergies, including new upcoming projects by creator and licensed therapist, Tamara Hubbard, LCPC. So be sure you're subscribed so you don't miss anything!


First, here's what NOT to expect from the monthly FAC e-newsletter!

  • Your email address will NOT be shared with or used for any other purposes

  • You will NOT get spammed with emails from FAC

Now, here's what you CAN expect from the monthly FAC e-newsletter...


Food Allergy-Related Social or Emotional Tips

Each month, the FAC newsletter will include guidance and tips to help navigate various aspects of life with food allergies.

  • July's tip was all about how the word AND makes a difference in our thoughts compared to the word OR, which leads us into a "this or that" mentality. The language we use - both for our own self-talk and with others - can be helpful when already feeling limited due to allergies.

  • May/June's tip was focused on navigating post-pandemic anxiety and stress while managing food allergies. It explored 3 practical strategies for navigating that anxiety/stress, and questions to ask yourself to help move forward with what's important even when it feels hard to do so (like, returning to school in the fall!)

Exploring Food Allergy Families Podcast News

In case you've missed any episodes, this monthly newsletter will share recent Exploring Food Allergy Families podcast episodes or information about future episodes or past ones. On that note, stay tuned for a series of brief episodes focused on specific therapeutic tips to help navigate allergy life, and hopefully a surprise guest or two! [Don't forget to subscribe via your favorite podcast app, such as Apple PodcastsiHeartRadio, or Spotify!]


Food Allergy Counselor Directory Updates

Stay aware of new food allergy-informed behavioral healthcare provider listings in case new ones are listed in your state! Additionally, FAC Directory listings are growing in other countries, such as Canada, Australia, and hopefully European countries soon, too! [May 2024 update: The Food Allergy Counseling Directory can now be found at www.FoodAllergyCounseling.org]


Food Allergy Therapeutic Worksheet Updates

As new allergy-specific therapeutic worksheets are created, they'll be spotlighted here. Lots of new ideas are planned to help the allergy community and allergists process various aspects of life with allergies, so check back frequently! 


Non-FAC Resources To Check Out

Listed here each month are non-Food Allergy Counselor resources that may be helpful. These will primarily be resources focused on helping with social and emotional aspects of allergy life, but may also include amazing general allergy resources to know about. Podcasts, books, apps, articles, webinars....there will be a little of everything!


Food Allergy Psychosocial Research

This section of the newsletter will keep you updated on the latest research and studies focused on the psychological, social, and emotional aspects of life with food allergies. And these research studies WILL lead to changes in patient care!


Helpful Info For Clinical Behavioral Health Providers

The Food Allergy Counselor Directory and website isn't just helpful for the allergy community and allergists, but it's also helpful for other allied healthcare providers such as licensed therapists, psychologists, social workers, and family therapists. This section highlights helpful information or resources for those supporting the allergy community!


As always, I welcome feedback from the allergy community and website visitors! Don't hesitate to reach out via the contact form to make suggestions or let me know what you think of the FAC website (or how it's helped you or your patients).


Thank you for your continued support!
