To successfully help patients lose weight and maintain their weight loss, clinicians need to teach patients both cognitive and behavioral skills such as how to motivate themselves daily, how to build a sense of self-efficacy, how to respond to sabotaging thoughts that lead them to stray from their plan, and how to solve problems such as stress, an overly busy schedule, eating out, emotional eating and bingeing. In this workshop, participants will learn how to help dieters make lifetime changes in their thinking and eating. Demonstrations and group exercises will illustrate precisely how to implement strategies critical to weight loss and maintenance. Although this workshop is oriented primarily toward health and mental health professionals, consumers are also invited to attend.

“Perhaps the best diet book ever to focus on the psychology of permanent weight loss.” — ANNE UNDERWOOD, NEWSWEEK MAGAZINE

No wonder people can’t stick to a diet. They have never learned how to change the fundamental way they think about food, eating, and themselves. When they experience hunger and craving, they think of their sensations as intolerable. When they cheat, they view themselves as helpless failures. They struggle with ideas of unfairness, have rebellious thoughts about structure and restriction, and simply do not accept the need for permanent change.
