Discover a path you can walk in 2017 to help you to learn to teach mindful eating.
The Center for Mindful Eating is pleased to present a 7-part Foundations of Mindful Eating webinar series. The series will cover seven basic areas of mindful eating practice, beginning with our Good Practice Guidelines, and continuing with exploring habitual eating patterns, basic principles of mindful eating, the role of meditation, eating well, body image, weight concerns and self-compassion. This foundational series is not a certification program, but rather a guide to help you on your path to becoming a mindful eating practitioner.
Please consider joining us for our first comprehensive webinar series entitled Foundations of Mindful Eating. These programs will be available for purchase and will include eligibility for the CE/CPE self-study credits for therapists and dietitians.

We are equally delighted to announce that this program, and our regular free programs for members, are now eligible for CE/CPE for therapists and dietitians. Our new CE/CPE provider, ISG, is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. ISG is also a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Accredited Provider with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). Participants will be able to earn their continuing education credits either by attending the programs live, or by watching the recorded video and completing the post-test survey and evaluation.
We purposely decided to begin this webinar series with TCME’s Good Practice Guidelines. These were developed in 2015 by members of the TCME board and advisory council. We are frequently asked where they can be trained as mindful eating professionals. The Good Practice Guidelines offer a suggested path where people can learn how to become a mindful eating professional who teaches mindful eating to their clients or patients. In order to convey the wisdom of the principles of mindful eating, a depth of experience with the practice of mindfulness in one’s own life is essential. In our Good Practice Guidelines, we describe how becoming a Mindful Eating Teacher consists of multiple stages of preparation, study, training, practice and direct teaching experience. Our Good Practice Guidelines are aspirational in nature. Not every professional who teaches aspects of mindful eating to their patients or clients will choose to be engaged in this level of training. Our hope is that the guidelines will be motivational for those who wish to be a part of this inspiring mindful eating work.
