Product Description

Binge Eating Disorder affects 6.5 million people, and many more are impacted by binge eating that is less frequent but equally distressing. In this 90-minute Webinar, Dr. Gia Marson, a psychologist with an expertise in eating disorders, will draw on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to:

  • Explain scientifically validated concepts about binge eating
  • Identify eating and non-eating related triggers
  • Teach six self-help tools for recovery
  • Answer questions about the challenges

Children initially eat naturally. They enjoy foods without experiencing shame or pride as a result of their choices. At the same time, they listen to their body’s hunger and fullness cues…until they are bombarded with the myths of eating, the stigma of various body shapes and sizes, and the labels of foods as good or bad.  How does this natural, biologically-driven relationship with food turn into a battle for so many adults and, for millions of people, turn into a cycle of binge eating? Most importantly, what are the keys to freedom with food?

Binge eating is characterized by eating much more quickly than is typical, eating until uncomfortably full, feeling guilty or disgusted after the overeating, often eating alone to reduce embarrassment, feeling a loss of control, and eating much more than would be expected even when not physically hungry.  It is essential to recognize that binge eating is not only about food. For those who don’t know where to begin to rebuild a satisfying relationship with eating, learning the effective science-based strategies is a hopeful place to start.

While most people do not meet the full criteria for the disorder, anyone who experiences binge eating can benefit from what will be shared in this Webinar, the triggers that may lead to this cycle and the steps that, research shows, lead to healing.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain hope that recovery from binge eating is possible using the CBT model.
  2. Teach the truth about diets and health: Why does dieting seem normal? Are weight and health synonymous?
  3. Answer eating and non-eating related triggers for binge eating.
