Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training For Professionals
A 5-Day Professional Training
Growing numbers of people struggle with their weight—and dieting is an outdated approach that does not address the underlying causes of weight gain. Clinical psychologist Jean Kristeller has developed Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), an intervention program that focuses on the mind-body connection for losing weight and gaining health.
MB-EAT addresses mindless eating, stress-related eating, disordered eating patterns, and obesity through the application of mindfulness meditation. This workshop for health-care professionals provides intensive training in the application of MB-EAT in a range of clinical settings.
Through demonstration, role-play, simulated exercises, and discussion you will learn the themes, material, and exercises in the MB-EAT program. You will also deepen your own mindfulness practice through daily meditation, eating meditations, movement meditations, and a half-day silent retreat.
You will learn:
- Basic principles of eating regulation
- Mindfulness meditation
- How to foster a positive relationship to eating and weight
- A new approach to working with individuals struggling with their relationship to food that does not involve dieting.
To date, MB-EAT, as supported by funding from the National Institute of Health, has demonstrated effectiveness in addressing issues with obesity and compulsive overeating. MB-EAT is designed to cultivate both inner wisdom (drawing on mind-body connections) and outer wisdom (addressing nutrition and exercise needs), in personalized and long-lasting ways.
As a result of this training, you will take home a thorough grounding in an evidence-based approach to helping your clients address weight issues in an effective, self-reliant way.
Learn scientifically proven practices to help your patients and clients develop a healthy, enjoyable relationship with eating and food.
Expand your understanding of the significance of the mind-body connection as applied to weight loss and body image issues.
Deepen your mindfulness meditation practice with experiential learning and a half-day in silence.
