    iEAT MEPT Mindful Eating Professional Training - IN ITALIAN


    iEAT MEPT mira alla formazione di professionisti nell’ambito del mindful eating in base al modello iEAT, che nasce dall’ integrazione dei principi e delle pratiche di mindfulness e mindful eating con la psicoeducazione. iEAT permette di esplorare il rapporto con l’alimentazione ed il corpo attraverso la modalità della consapevolezza. iEAT aiuta a sviluppare una relazione salutare e gioiosa con il cibo, basata sull’ascolto dei segnali interni del corpo, sull’uso dei cinque sensi, sulle emozioni, sui pensieri e sull’ utilizzo degli ingredienti essenziali della compassione e fiducia nel corpo. iEAT è un programma strutturato, ma allo stesso tempo flessibile che può essere adattato a vari contesti e popolazioni. La forma base comprende otto incontri ed un on-going support group per le persone che hanno partecipato al corso base. Il corso così strutturato offre il vantaggio di adattare la lunghezza del corso ai bisogni dei partecipanti ed offre un supporto stabile nel tempo. L’iEAT MEPT è volto a sviluppare le conoscenze per l’abilitazione alla conduzione del programma iEAT.


    Struttura dell’iEAT MEPT

    La struttura del corso comprende un percorso educativo-esperienziale suddiviso in due moduli formativi. iEAT MEPT Livello 1


    iEAT MEPT Livello 1: Residential Training

    Si svolgerà in forma di training residenziale di 5 giorni e prevede momenti didattici di introduzione al programma iEAT, approfondimenti scientifici dei programmi di Mindful Eating, esercitazioni pratiche di conduzione e pratiche di mindfulness che rappresentano una componente fondamentale della formazione. Queste includono meditazioni sedute, body-scan, mindful yoga, meditazione camminata. Le pratiche specifiche di mindful eating prevedono, inoltre, che alcuni pasti verranno svolti in silenzio. Durante il training verranno proposti alcuni periodi di silenzio. Il completamento del training di I° livello iEAT MEPT e la conduzione di almeno un gruppo iEAT permetteranno di accedere al percorso di supervisione e al training di II° livello.


    iEAT MEPT Livello 2: On Line Training

    Si svolgerà in forma di training on-line e prevederà 10 incontri on-line della durata di h 1.30 rivolti ad approfondire, attraverso una modalità didattica interattiva, i temi e le pratiche principali del programma, così come le modalità di conduzione dei gruppi iEAT e dei gruppi di supporto aperti (on-going support groups) che seguono il programma di base. Durante il training on-line inoltre sarà possibile comprendere qual è il ruolo del Mindful Eating Teacher e riflettere sugli aspetti ad esso interconnessi. Tale modulo on-line prevede inoltre momenti di supervisione a tutti i partecipanti. Date training on-line:

    NOVEMBRE 2020: 2-9-16-23-30. Orario dalle 19.00 alle 20.0

    MARZO 2021: 1-8-15-22-29


    Ritiro Silenzioso

    Elemento fondamentale del percorso formativo dell'iET MEPT riguarda la pratica di mindfulness personale. Tale training richiede, pertanto, la partecipazione al ritiro silenzioso "La via del Silenzio e dell'Ascolto". Il ritiro si può completare prima o durante il training stesso. Il ritiro si terrà dal 14 al 21 gennaio 2020, oppure al 12 al 17 gennaio 2021.


    Schema del training:

    • I° Livello iEAT- MEPT Training residenziale di 5 gg
    • Ritiro silenzioso di 5 gg (per coloro che non lo avessero già seguito)
    • II° Livello iEAT- MEPT Training on-line di formazione e di supervisione di gruppo


    Risultati di apprendimento Al termine del training i partecipanti avranno avuto la possibilità di:

    • Definire i principi essenziali del mindful eating
    • Acquisire competenze relative alla conduzione delle pratiche principali di mindful eating all’interno del modello iEAT
    • Comprendere il valore fondamentale della pratica personale di mindfulness e mindful eating rispetto alla conduzione dei gruppi
    • Conoscere e interpretare le implicazioni pratiche delle più attuali ricerche sul mindful eating

      Competenze:

      This training is designed for professionals who have completed ME-CL1 and taught a minimum of one 8-week program using the ME-CL curriculum.

      The heart of this second level training is an invitation for experienced ME-CL teachers to explore more deeply the principles that are the underpinnings of the ME-CL program and to step more fully into embodying this in their teaching. Teaching from this platform highlights the need for attendees to have ongoing formal and informal mindfulness practices. This training will focus on the cultivation of intentional presence, authenticity, integrity and mindfulness-informed boundaries that support both the teacher and participants.

      While it is true that any aspect of life can be an entry way to becoming more mindful, disordered eating often comes with a complex history that can manifest in reactive behaviors. We will examine the importance of meeting ourselves and our participants with steadiness and kindness, and carefully contemplate the place of compassion in this program

      The intersection of mindfulness, eating and our relationship to food is the focus of this Mindful Eating/Conscious Living professional training. Inherent within that juncture are the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations that impact how we relate to food and our body in skillful and unskillful ways.

      This training emphasizes experiential engagement in mindfulness meditation practices and mindful eating awareness exercises, so that the participants will be able to pass the benefit of these exercises on to clients and patients in a variety of settings. These practices and exercises are integral components of the eight-session Mindful Eating Program Manual designed by Bays and Wilkins, which provides the organizing structure for creating a program appropriate to the individuals and groups you serve. This training centers on building skills as you explore, experience and learn to teach core aspects of mindful eating

      This professional training focuses on the intersection of mindfulness, eating and our relationship to food.

The training emphasizes experiential engagement in mindfulness meditation practices and mindful eating awareness exercises, so that the participant will be able to pass the benefit of these exercises on to clients and patients in a variety of settings. These practices and exercises are integral components of the eight-session Mindful Eating Program Manual- Teacher’s Guide, designed by Bays and Wilkins, which provides the organizing structure of this training. Every participant will receive a copy of the Teacher’s Guide, both in English and in German.

      ME-CL1 training provides professionals with a curriculum that enables them to explore and teach the fundamentals of mindful eating. It will provide practical ways to integrate mindfulness and mindful eating into working with patients, individually or in groups. It is also an opportunity to support and strengthen the practice of meditation, which is the essential foundation for teaching mindful eating.

You'll be able to immediately apply these tools in your own lives as well as with patients to help improve resilience, health and well-being and cultivate a more balanced, wiser, healthier relationship to food. Session themes and practices include cultivating foundational practices and qualities that enhance well-being in everyday life: meditation practice, mindful eating, movement and yoga, self-compassion, lovingkindness and how to stay present and embodied in the moment. We will work with difficult mind states and use the power of intention to create sustained and meaningful change. You will leave with a jewel box of practices to inform work with patients and your own self-care for a long time to come.
