Eating disorders and disordered eating habits, finding balance through mindful eating
Caroline Baerten, MA, RD
Recorded June 25 and July 2, 2019
For several decades the interventions for eating disorders (AN, BED, BN) were dominated by a behavioral cognitive approach based on scientific studies using this angle. In the past ten years there has been a new wave in research: mindfulness and compassion-based interventions are receiving more attention. Along with this, mindful eating has become an effective tool for patients on the spectrum of restrictive eating and binge eating.
In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and practice different mindfulness, mindful eating and compassion-based exercises which benefit people with eating disorders and those with unbalanced eating habits.
Caroline Baerten is the founder of MeNu, Centre for Mindful Eating and Nutrition, in the heart of Europe (Brussels). She also serves on the board of The Center for Mindful Eating.

The BASICS of Mindful Eating
presented by Lynn Rossy PhD
The BASICS of Mindful Eating webinar is a two-part series that takes you through the skills that you need to eat mindfully, and provides a very useful tool for teaching others to eat mindfully. The BASICS of Mindful Eating is a component of the Eat for Life Program, developed by the presenter as a guide each time you sit down to eat. The steps of the BASICS take you from the pause before you eat to the point where you are guided to stop eating. Meditation practices and the BASICS of Mindful Eating will be offered as a home practice that you will do throughout the week. In the second part of the series there will be a discussion about what you experienced with the practices. In addition, the overarching principles of mindful eating will be reviewed and discussed as they relate to both your personal and professional practice, emphasizing that we are always both a teacher and a student of mindful eating. Remaining fresh and current in your own life with the practice of mindful eating is a prerequisite for teaching it.
Understanding Emotional Eating for Health Care Professionals,
Presented by Kari Anderson, DBH, LCMHC, CEDS-S
Emotional eating is part of normal eating, yet when it becomes habitual, can lead to significant physical and emotional distress and sometimes an eating disorder. Learn more about how mindfulness can be used as a bridge to a healthier relationship with food, one that is based on optimizing one’s autonomy and competence of eating.
Mindful Meditation Practice and Scientific Theory,
Presented by Sharon M Theroux, PhDA formal mindful meditation practice is essential to increase awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and body sensations that drive us to eat mindlessly. In this two-part webinar series, we discuss and explore 2 different formal meditation practices that can help us become more awake in our daily lives.
In part one of the series, we briefly review what mindfulness is, its history and benefits as a practice. Together, we will practice a Body Scan meditation. Then, we will review the scientific theory that helps to explain how this particular meditation can re-wire the brain and reduce disordered eating behaviors. Participants will be provided a Body Scan audio file to practice throughout the week.
In the second part, we will discuss and experience Sitting Meditation, a formal meditation practice that can re-wire the brain to become more attentive in our daily lives. We will also explore the neurological correlates of this practice, and discuss how this practice can improve our ability to respond to life, rather than reacting in mindless ways.

Reframing Nutrition Education Through the Lens of Mindful Eating,
Presented by Marsha Hudnall MS, RD, CDN, and Dana Notte, MS, RD, CDNAt first glance, it may seem as though nutrition education is completely counter to the spirit of mindful eating. Traditional perceptions may conjure up thoughts of calorie prescriptions, exchange lists, food labels, and portion size guides, none of which are consistent with a mindfulness-based approach to making food decisions. At the same time, nutrition does influence health and diet can play a key role in managing many health conditions. So, as health professionals who care about supporting and helping to improve the health and well-being of clients, who also embrace mindful eating, how does nutrition education fit in to your work?
Part 1 of this two-part webinar series will explore how the role of food and the definition of nutrition change when viewed through the lens of mindful eating and how to provide nutrition education in a way that is also consistent with the spirit of mindful eating.
Part 2 of this two-part webinar series will explore practical strategies for providing mindfulness-inspired nutrition education to specific populations, such as those with chronic health conditions, food intolerances and allergies, and a history of disordered eating or eating disorders.

Heartfulness: A Compassion- Based Approach to Eating,
Presented by Caroline Baerten, MA, RD
Recent scientific studies demonstrate how a compassionate mind influences our brains, bodies and the way we relate to ourselves and food. In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and experience different compassion-based meditation practices which nourish the heart qualities, both for health care professionals as their clients.These heart-full meditations will be offered as a home assignment after the first session and practiced on a daily basis throughout the following week.
In part 1, we offer an introduction to heart-full-ness that will provide participants with a better understanding of these effective qualities, its history and benefits. In the second part of the series, there is time for sharing and an opportunity to learn from each other what they've noticed in the past week.
In part 2, there will be further deepening of the compassion-based model for individuals with eating issues (working with resistance, self-criticism, shame, difficult emotions).

Mindful Eating for Well-Being, What’s Weight Got to Do with It?
Presented by Sandra Aamodt, PhD
As concern about body size continues as a primary topic among those interested in health and well-being, it is essential that mindful eating teachers understand the role of mindful eating in supporting the internal regulation of a healthful weight. Equally important is to recognize weight stigma, which is a driving factor for eating and weight struggles among many people.
This presentation will equip mindful eating teachers with understanding, knowledge and tools to help their clients move beyond the thin ideal to make eating choices that truly support their health and well-being.
