    Description: Explore the neurobiological framework of obesity and overeating, and the evidence-based psychological strategies to manage appetite dysregulation. Growing literature suggests that mindfulness-based strategies for eating behavior are effective and superior to traditional models of behavioral weight management for both weight loss and other related parameters. Learn strategies to incorporate these skills into patient encounters, and learn about available resources for patients outside of the clinical setting.
