Educational Webinars

We host a variety of educational webinars most of which are free to members.

For professionals we offer two series of webinars, Professional Education and Foundations of Mindful Eating II:

Professional Education series webinars are 45-60 minute professional enrichment webinars for health care professionals, psychologists, health coaches, and any one else who teaches mindful eating in a clinical setting. These webinars are free to all TCME members and $15 for non-members. Many of these webinars earn 1 CE through CDR for dietitians.

Some of these webinars also offer CE's for psychologists.

Foundations in Mindful Eating II series consists of 5 2-part webinars on foundational mindful eating topics. These webinars are $30 for TCME members and $60 for non-members and offer 2 CEs through CDR for dietitians. Some of these webinars also offer CE's for psychologists.

Exploring Mindful Eating *New for 2019*, we are introducing a new series of webinars for non-professionals who wish to learn more about how to begin or maintain a mindful eating practice. While these webinars are aimed at non-professionals, professionals are welcome to attend. These webinars are free, although donations are greatly appreciated.

Past programs, including our Foundations of Mindful Eating I series, are recorded and available in our TCME Store.  All past programs are free to TCME members, with the exception of the Foundations series, which are available to non-members at a 50% discount.

    The Mindful Eating for the Treatment of Binge Eating Disorder webinar is a two-part foundations series aimed at professionals looking to increase their knowledge of binge eating disorder (BED) and apply mindfulness and mindful eating skills to the treatment of this disorder. Mindful eating provides an important framework for the treatment of BED in encouraging connection with the body, finding pleasure in food, and shifting from reliance on dieting to listening to the innate cues of our own body. Taught from a weight-inclusive Health At Every Size framework, we believe that weight stigma and dieting are key factors in the onset and maintenance of binge eating disorder and must be specific targets in treatment.

    Week 1 of the webinar will teach participants the signs and symptoms of binge eating disorder and the role of weight stigma and dieting in the disorder. Clinical case examples will be used throughout to illustrate concepts. We will also review the research on the effectiveness of mindful eating interventions in BED treatment and explore the use of mindful eating interventions from a weight-inclusive perspective using clinical examples.

    Week 2 of the webinar will center the voices of people in recovery from BED (many who are professionals themselves) and/or people who have first-hand experiences with weight stigma in a panel discussion to explore the topics of weight stigma, mindful eating, and treatment modalities from a new perspective. Participants will have the opportunity to ask panel members questions and receive feedback on clinical cases, should they wish to present clinical dilemmas or vignettes. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. Explain how a weight-inclusive approach can benefit BED treatment
    2. Identify 3 benefits of mindful eating in the treatment of BED
    3. Recognize symptoms of binge eating disorder
