Stress Eating: Can We Comfort Ourselves with Food?

  • 17 Nov 2014
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EST)
  • FREE Teleconference - Open to the Public


Registration is closed

"Stress eating" often gets identified as the primary type of out-of-control eating. But the connection is actually quite complex, and can arise for a number of reasons: to seek comfort from food; confusing anxiety with hunger; or blocking out distress, among others. This teleconference will explore these patterns and alternatives to managing stress, and managing eating in the face of stress.

Jean L. Kristeller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, has used meditation-based interventions for eating disorders and obesity for more than 20 years, and has received NIH funding for related research for the past eight years. She has taught at Harvard Medical School, the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and Indiana State University, and co-founded The Center for Mindful Eating.

Participants will :
Identify how stress can trigger overeating.
Understand how stress eating can be part of balanced or mindful eating.
Learn how to manage stress triggers.
