Mindful Eating para la Familia

Claudia Vega Me.D.

Cuando trabajamos la nutrición pediátrica, en específico los problemas relacionados a la ingesta excesiva, o deficiente y monótona de los niños y adolescentes, necesitamos entender las costumbres y creencias del sistema familiar en torno a la alimentación. La alimentación consciente (Mindful Eating) puede permitir a los niños reconectar con la sabiduría natural de sus cuerpos para tomar decisiones adecuadas en torno al comer. También puede ayudar a los padres a recuperar la confianza en que sus hijos pueden comer sana y equilibradamente, sin necesidad de tantas reglas y restricciones alimentarias.

The Five Precepts of Mindful Eating: Ethical Considerations on the Path

Ronna Kabatznick, Ph.D.

Mindful Living isn't just a way of eating, it's a way of living. Mindful Eating actually exists in a much wider context that includes the ways in which we may harm ourselves both physically and emotionally. Additionally we will examine the ways in which we speak about our food that may be ungrateful and even morally incorrect. How honest are we about how we use food to dampen emotions or use food as a weapon against ourselves? And of course, there are the ways in which we may use food as an intoxicant. 

Eating with attention

Alice J. Rosen, MSEd, LMHC, begins with a simple assessment of the quality of relationship with food and an experience of mindfully eating a challenging food, with a check-in before and after. It proceeds to elaborate on mindful eating by using the principles as a backbone.

Creating Mindful Eaters: Building Mindful Mealtime Skills with Children

(1 CE/CPE)

Lynn Rossy, Ph. D. 

Adults can influence children’s eating behaviors by the foods they offer, the behaviors they model, and their social interactions with children at snack and mealtimes. Sitting down with children, eating the same foods in family-style dining provides an opportunity to encourage children’s curiosity and interest in tasting and experiencing a wide variety of healthy foods. Given May 16, 2017.

Included: One 60-min video (mp4) with survey and post-test links for 1 CE/CPE for therapists and dietitians provided by International Seminars Group (ISG). 

Establishing a Mindful Eating Practice

(1 CE/CPE)

Sharon Theroux, Ph.D. Establishing a mindful eating practice, and moving away from the diet mentality is life affirming. However, cultivating such a practice in our fast-paced society can be a challenge, requiring a shift from using external guidance about what, when, and how much to eat (e.g. diets, provided portion sizes, dress size, the bathroom scale) to internal guidance (e.g. using your taste buds, your hunger/satiety cues). A daily formal practice is essential. Given March 14, 2017.

Included: One 60-min video (mp4) with survey and post-test links for 1 CE/CPE for therapists and dietitians provided by International Seminars Group (ISG). 

Get Stressed, Eat, Repeat. Why Eating Becomes Habit 

(2 CE/CPE)

Judson Brewer, MD, Ph.D. 

Stress, emotional and mindless eating play a large role in setting up and perpetuating unsupportive eating habits. Why? These may be tapping into the same reward-based learning processes that evolved to help us remember where food is - and in modern day are hijacked by both chemical and behavioral addictions (including eating). Given February 21 & 28, 2017. Included: Two 60-min videos (mp4) with survey and post-test links for 2 CE/CPE for therapists and dietitians provided by International Seminars Group (ISG).
