322 Overcoming Emotional Eating

Judith Beck & Deborah Beck Busis • Friday Afternoon

Judith BeckDeborah Beck BusisNo one likes dieting, especially since the research shows that most approaches simply don’t work. But what if you could help your clients think of dieting not as a set of restrictive rules, but as a set of skills you can teach them to master? Through case-history discussion, role-play, and a review of behavioral experiments, we’ll explore ways to keep your clients on track as they make fundamental changes in their thinking about dieting and eating behavior.

You’ll discover how to help your clients:

  • Develop an eating plan and stick with it
  • Create an accountability system that builds in positive feedback for success
  • Give themselves credit when they’ve resisted food cravings and avoid self-blame for temporary setbacks
