, MSW, LICSW, for "The Self-Compassion Diet: Treating Eating Issues with Loving-Kindness"
When it comes to treating the range of eating issues, many therapists know that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness are a winning combination. But most don’t think to add self-compassion into the therapeutic mix. Why would they? Researchers interested in eating issues have only recently turned a scientific eye on these ancient compassion-enhancing practices. Plus, most clinicians haven’t had a chance to survey the scientific literature, let alone translate the exciting findings on loving-kindness into their daily work with clients.
After providing a working definition of this guiding meditative principle, the presenter will review the cutting-edge research, and put the findings into a useful therapeutic context. Participants will learn updated self-compassion practices that are proving beneficial for the range of eating issues.
