    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.

    1.5 Continuing Education Credit Available for Dietitians

    It is the position of TCME that mindful eating is inherently a weight inclusive practice and that mindful eating for purposes of intentional weight loss is inconsistent with the spirit of mindful eating. Yet, mindful eating is often positioned in the popular press and even in the research literature as a practice compatible with and suitable for intentional weight loss. Undoubtedly, this leads to a lot of confusion among healthcare providers, clients, and mindfulness practitioners who aim to incorporate mindful eating into their teaching and into their lives. In an effort to resolve this discrepancy, TCME has invited 4 highly respected and experienced mindful eating professionals and teachers to discuss this topic of mindful eating and weight inclusivity further.

    In this 90-minute panel discussion, our panelists will discuss why mindful eating is a weight inclusive practice and to use it as a weight-loss intervention is antithetical to the spirit of mindful eating; how to integrate mindful eating through a weight inclusive lens when working with clients with health conditions that would generally carry recommendations for weight loss; and some of the challenges and concerns that arise for teachers and practitioners of mindful eating who may feel called to be more weight inclusive but work with a population who desires weight loss.

    Learning Objectives

    • Explain why the pursuit of intentional weight loss is in conflict with the spirit of mindful eating. 

    • Discuss how to apply principles of weight inclusivity and mindful eating to work with clients with chronic health conditions for whom weight loss is often recommended. 

    • Identify perceived challenges that exist when transitioning to a weight inclusive practice and possible solutions for/responses to the challenges identified.

    2 Continuing Education Credit Available for Dietitians

    The Mindful Eating for the Treatment of Binge Eating Disorder webinar is a two-part foundations series aimed at professionals looking to increase their knowledge of binge eating disorder (BED) and apply mindfulness and mindful eating skills to the treatment of this disorder. Mindful eating provides an important framework for the treatment of BED in encouraging connection with the body, finding pleasure in food, and shifting from reliance on dieting to listening to the innate cues of our own body. Taught from a weight-inclusive Health At Every Size framework, we believe that weight stigma and dieting are key factors in the onset and maintenance of binge eating disorder and must be specific targets in treatment.

    Week 1 of the webinar will teach participants the signs and symptoms of binge eating disorder and the role of weight stigma and dieting in the disorder. Clinical case examples will be used throughout to illustrate concepts. We will also review the research on the effectiveness of mindful eating interventions in BED treatment and explore the use of mindful eating interventions from a weight-inclusive perspective using clinical examples.

    Week 2 of the webinar will center the voices of people in recovery from BED (many who are professionals themselves) and/or people who have first-hand experiences with weight stigma in a panel discussion to explore the topics of weight stigma, mindful eating, and treatment modalities from a new perspective. Participants will have the opportunity to ask panel members questions and receive feedback on clinical cases, should they wish to present clinical dilemmas or vignettes. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. Explain how a weight-inclusive approach can benefit BED treatment
    2. Identify 3 benefits of mindful eating in the treatment of BED
    3. Recognize symptoms of binge eating disorder
