Mindful eating is an approach which is very new in the field of nutrition and eating behavior. Most research on mindful eating focuses on overeating or binge eating patterns.
Over the past several years, our presenter, a mindful eating teacher, dietitian and therapist, Caroline Baerten, RD, has been exploring the benefits of mindful eating with individuals who have extreme restrictive eating habits and anorectic mindsets. In this webinar, the aim is to understand which elements of a mindful eating program might contribute to the healing process for those suffering from anorexia and restrictive eating.
This program is intended for professionals working with this population. Participants will:
1 Gain insight into the anorectic mind
2 Explore the benefits and limitations of mindful eating when working with anorexia
3 Learn mindfulness-based tools for professionals
