    We are delighted to welcome back Karen Koenig, LCSW, M.Ed, to our TCME teleconference program with Life Skills to Heal Troubled Eating.

    Sometimes troubled eating is more about how you live your life than what and how much you eat. If you're short on skills to live mindfully, develop and maintain healthy relationships, think critically rather than respond emotionally, problem solve effectively, balance work and play, attain and maintain your goals, and take stellar care of yourself physically and mentally, you may have difficulty managing your eating. But learn these life skills and you won’t need to turn to food to cope, for comfort, or when you’re stressed or distressed. With enhanced skills, you’ll improve your life and your eating.

    Participants will:
    • identify life skills needed to have a positive relationship with food 
    • recognize the relevance of life skill competency to healing troubled eating
    • assess which life skills they need to improve in order to heal their eating problems


    Access to this Webinar:

    MB-EAT is a powerful approach that addresses the mindless eating so prevalent in our culture that can lead to weight gain, obesity, disordered eating patterns and stress-related eating.

    In this highly participatory weekend, you will experience a new approach to eating, supported by NIH-funded research, that helps you cultivate your inner wisdom through a variety of mindful eating practices and guided meditations. You will learn a way to eat that is more attuned to your body's needs, how to experience the full pleasure and taste of food without overeating, and how to release the guilt and struggle so often associated with dieting. Outer wisdom -- making personal use of current, scientifically-based nutrition and exercise guidelines, without dieting undefined will also be explored.

    The weekend includes daily sitting meditation, eating meditations, discussion and gentle movement and yoga exercises to bring awareness and deepen understanding of mindfulness meditation and mindful eating as it applies to both eating and balanced present joyful living. No previous mindfulness meditation experience is required.

    CEs available for professionals.

    Mindful Eating With Kids and Teens: A Daylong Workshop on Developing a Mindful Relationship with Food and Eating

    Jan Chozen Bays, MD and Char Wilkins MSW, LCSW



    Mindful eating isn’t just for adults. Kids have natural curiosity and enjoy making discoveries about food. Think of the life-long benefits of helping kids and teens find balance and joy in eating! Get ready to have fun, laugh with others and even at yourself, in this experiential workshop.

    Research shows that children who begin dieting early are at greater risk of eating disorders later in life. Mindful eating helps shift a young person’s focus from external cues (calorie counts, airbrushed pictures in fashion ads, pop stars and idols) to natural internal cues of hunger and satiety. It is easier for children to re-learn a skill they had as toddlers, the ability to listen to the body’s innate wisdom about eating, than it is as an adult.

    Young people in their teens are assaulted by a barrage of media through multiple technologies that demand their attention and provide distraction at the same time.  Striving for acceptance, love and success while trying to cope with peer pressure about body image, can result in disordered eating patterns such as restricting, bingeing, purging, dieting and fasting.  Mis-use of food to comfort, sooth, numb or punish is a growing health concern among youth.


    In this workshop attendees with be active participants and observers as we are joined first by a group of children 7-12 years old. We’ll be leading them through mindfulness exercises that explore the 8 hungers and talking with them about how, what, when and why they eat. We can learn how to help children navigate the world of food and eating through non-judgmental listening and simple mindful eating exercises that can assist them in relating differently to food and eating.

    Then a group of teens will join us to explore the role anxiety plays in eating, things that can be confused with hunger, conditioned familial patterns, and the relationship between mood and food. We’ll have a look at mindless eating as well as ways to work mindfully with texting/surfing/talking and eating at the same time!
    Mindfulness learned in relationship to eating can spread to and enliven many other aspects of life. Attendees will be asked to engage with curiosity and kindness as participant-observers.

    Attendees will:
    • learn simple, practical ways to introduce mindful eating to children and teens
    • be able to name and comment on 4 of the 8 hungers in the body
    • be able to define what mindful eating is

    Facilitators: Jan Chozen Bays, MD and Char Wilkins, MSW, LCSW
