NP0014, Diets, Session 2, Judith Beck


Join Judith Beck, one of the world’s leading cognitive-behavioral therapists, in this second session of “Diets and Our Demons.” She’ll cover the skills that are necessary for successful dieting, and detail what’s most important to effective weight loss.

Beck will explain how to help clients follow through on a healthy lifestyle by facilitating the development of pre-dieting skills, regularizing eating, changing food selection, planning for special occasions, and keeping the motivation to integrate these skills into everyday life in a long-term manner.

After listening to the session, please share on the Comment Board what you learned and any questions you may have. What was most interesting to you or relevant to your professional or personal life? We encourage you to include your name and hometown with your comment, and to take a few minutes to read and response to other participants’ comments. As always, if you have any technical questions or issues, please feel free to email support@psychotherapynetworker.org anytime.
