Emotional and Binge Eating, Chronic Dieting, and Shame: What Therapists Need to Know

12.00 CE Hours Available

While the treatment of eating disorders requires specialized training, it’s important for all therapists to understand the paradigm shift happening in our field when it comes to eating problems and weight concerns. In this in-depth program you’ll discover how recovery from overeating and bingeing is more than a matter of self-control, weight loss, or even understanding the emotional triggers. Judith will teach you how to integrate multiple facets of treatment— including the attuned eating framework, the role of shame and self-compassion, emotional regulation, body image strategies, understanding weight stigma and the Health At Every Size® paradigm—so that clients have the tools necessary to end overeating and develop a healthy relationship with food, their bodies, and themselves. Judith will address these important topics using a variety of teaching approaches including lively didactic material, experiential exercises and small group interactions.
