Mindful Eating and Trauma-Focused care


Caroline Baerten, MA, RD 

Recorded July 9, 2019


Any health professional who looks a little further than the direct symptoms (weight, eating behavior), can only conclude that many psychological problems of our patients have a traumatic core. This concerns single traumatic moments from the past or longer periods of chronic traumatization.


For many people, sexual abuse, abusive or violent relationships, bullying and chronic humiliation are at the bottom of their problems. The experience of the trauma, the way it is stored in the memory network and in the body, is largely a non-linguistic event. This means that in therapy we will have to use approaches that come into direct contact with the body. The work of Bessel van der Kolk, Peter Levine, Pete Walker, Francine Shapiro and others are central in this webinar.


We explore how mindfulness and compassion-based exercises might be useful for trauma survivors with symptomatic eating issues. The theoretical framework focuses primarily on the "sub-verbal" layer of the trauma and its mechanisms. Different examples and exercises will help to better understand the nature of trauma and how it leads to disturbed eating behavior.

Eating disorders and disordered eating habits, finding balance through mindful eating


Caroline Baerten, MA, RD

Recorded June 25 and July 2, 2019


For several decades the interventions for eating disorders (AN, BED, BN) were dominated by a behavioral cognitive approach based on scientific studies using this angle. In the past ten years there has been a new wave in research: mindfulness and compassion-based interventions are receiving more attention. Along with this, mindful eating has become an effective tool for patients on the spectrum of restrictive eating and binge eating.

In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and practice different mindfulness, mindful eating and compassion-based exercises which benefit people with eating disorders and those with unbalanced eating habits. 

Included:

  • Two video presentations
  • Two PDFs of the PowerPoint slides
  • One PDF with links to complete the evaluation and post-quizzes for two (2) continuing education credits provided by TCME

Foundations II: Reframing Nutrition Education Through the Lens of Mindful Eating

Dana Notte and Marsha Hudnall

At first glance, it may seem as though nutrition education is completely counter to the spirit of mindful eating. Traditional perceptions may conjure up thoughts of calorie prescriptions, exchange lists, food labels, and portion size guides, none of which are consistent with a mindfulness-based approach to making food decisions. At the same time, nutrition does influence health and diet can play a key role in managing many health conditions. So, as health professionals who care about supporting and helping to improve the health and well-being of clients, who also embrace mindful eating, how does nutrition education fit in to your work?
