Description: For Health Care Professionals
Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), developed by Jean Kristeller PhD and supported by NIH-funded research, addresses mindless and stress-related eating, disordered eating patterns, and obesity through the application of mindfulness meditation. This workshop provides intensive training in the application of the MB-EAT intervention program in clinical settings.
Informed by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction work and the principles of food-intake regulation, the MB-EAT program employs mindfulness meditation, eating exercises, didactic instruction, and self-reflection to cultivate awareness and a more balanced and positive relationship to eating and weight.
Those with a substantive mindfulness meditation practice and related professional/clinical experience with eating issues are eligible to receive the full manual and be qualified to teach the MB-EAT program. Others receive an introduction to the practices of MB-EAT and gain valuable tools, approaches, and information to integrate into their work with others. CE credits available.
