    About the Event

    A mindful eating intention is a gentle and sustainable way to keep mindful eating a part of day to day life. Different than resolutions or goals, intentions focus on the process rather than the outcome. They are also modifiable as feelings, thoughts, and behaviors continue to evolve. In this practical webinar, we will focus on the underlying view of a mindful eating intention as well as how to work with it as life - and our bodies - continues to change.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand two ways in which intentions are different from resolutions or goals
    2. List three ways to sustain a mindful eating intention
    3. Identify one relevant mindful eating intention to focus attention on right now

    At 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 into your work?

    In 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.

    Learning Objectives

    • Compare and contrast more traditional perceptions of nutrition and nutrition education with those inspired by mindful eating.
    • Identify nutrition education tools and strategies that support changes in eating behavior while also being consistent with the spirit of mindful eating.
    • Describe useful 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.

    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. 

    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
