Therapeutic interventions for clients with emotional eating behaviours
This is a CPD four day event for qualified counsellors, psychotherapists or psychologists, who are motivated to extend their practice into this challenging area of work.
Jan 24th / 25th and Feb 28th / March 1st 2019
We have designed this course to provide a coherent psychological understanding of some of the key issues that contribute to emotional eating and obesity, together with the knowledge and skills needed to respond effectively with clients with over-eating issues. Teaching methods will include didactic input, small group work, role play, experiential activities, plenary discussions and supervision.
We will employ an integrative approach including some TA concepts and CBT techniques.
The course comprises four modules, which focus respectively on helping clients:
1 - Explore and understand their emotional eating.
2 - Explore their motivation and resistance to changing their eating behaviour.
3 - Accept, contain and manage their feelings more effectively.
4 - Identify and challenge old thinking patterns.
As WeightWise Academy, Lesley and Liz have run successful programmes in theNHS for clients with over-eating, binge eating and emotional eating patterns. They are currently commissioned to provide psychological weight management concepts as part of the Change Point initiative across Nottinghamshire. Their research evidence and findings can be found at www.weightwiseacademy.co.uk.
