    About the event

    As health care professionals, it's common to have questions about teaching mindful eating and emotional nourishment to clients, patients and students. But how often do you have the opportunity to ask those questions and receive answers that can help sharpen your skills, boost your confidence and make you a more effective professional?

    This is your chance to ask your most persistent or esoteric questions - broad or specific - about mindful eating and emotional nourishment, theory and practice For example:

    • How do I deal with resistant clients? 
    • What can I do to help clients who feel empty and who eat their anger? 
    • Are there ways to help clients work with body self-hatred and emotional starvation?
    • And more. All questions are welcome!

    Your registration confirmation email will include a link where you can submit your questions prior to the event so answers can be categorized by topic. Or, if you prefer, ask questions via the Zoom chat box during the live session. Let's dig deep together and get to the raw issues facing mindful eating and emotional nourishment professionals.

    CE's are not offered for this event.

    For several decades, interventions for eating disorders (AN, BED, BN) have been dominated by cognitive behavioral studies. In the past ten years there has been a third wave in research in which mindfulness and compassion-based interventions are receiving more attention. Mindful eating is becoming 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. 

    Several meditations will be offered as a home assignment after the first session and practiced on a daily basis throughout the following week. It is recommended that health professionals only offer mindfulness exercises to their clients with eating disorders if they practice these skills and embody mindful living themselves.  

    In part one of the series, we offer a framework that will provide participants with a better understanding of eating disorders from a mindful eating perspective, a resume of up-to-date research and the preliminaries to work with patients with eating disorders. In part two, patients with overeating and binge eating symptoms will be discussed. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. The participants will be able to list the different mindful eating, mindfulness and compassion-based meditations developed for individuals with eating disorders (AN, BN, BED) 
    2. By assessing the treat-drive-caring system (Paul Gilbert, PhD), health professionals can demonstrate new compassion-based approaches for their clients and to calm down the treat-drive system. 
    3. Through neuroscience and up-to-date research in mindfulness, the attendees will be able to understand and embody different cognitive-affective mindfulness qualities

    About the Event

    For some people the word “exercise” is a dirty word, however, some of you will absolutely adore it, and the rest of you fall along the middle somewhere. But, no matter which category you place yourself in, everyone moves their body if they are physically capable. And, there is a way to learn to appreciate and enjoy this very common activity—physical movement—through mindfulness and by setting aside your preconceived ideas about it. 

    When physical activity is seen as a chore, something that we have to do, and an activity associated with being "bad" from eating too much or to lose weight, then a natural resistance arises toward it. But, there is another way of approaching physical activity. By developing a loving partnership with your body, you learn to move it in a respectful manner that enhances wellbeing. Just like you use mindfulness to eat with more pleasure, you can use mindfulness to move in ways that feel delicious. Join me in this webinar and discover how for yourself. No special clothes or shoes necessary. Just bring your body.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Name the benefits of yoga on eating disorder symptoms.
    2. List three ways of getting more NEAT activity into your day.
    3. List three ways mindfulness helps maintain higher activity levels.
