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.
Review the diagnostic criteria and epidemiological information about binge-eating disorder, other specified feeding and eating disorders, night-eating disorder, and unspecified eating disorders that commonly co-occur with obesity. Discuss how mental health and eating disorder professionals treat these disorders, including medication management, therapeutic techniques, and dietary recommendations. Also discuss a common orientation within the eating disorder treatment community: "Healthy at Every Size." Learn how to effectively partner with mental health and eating disorder professionals to effectively treat eating disorders and obesity.
