    A Taste of Mindfulness

    PRESENTED BY Kristen Beard, MBSR Instructor

    Tuesday, October 8,12:00 PM EST, (time zone converter)

    Mindfulness.  You see it mentioned everywhere, even Time Magazine.  What used to be an obscure practice has gone mainstream.  It promises a host of benefits and cures for what ails us, all with a scientific pedigree.  There are claims that it can reduce our stress and anxiety. That it can make us more resilient in dealing of our crazy lives. That it can be supportive for a wide range of chronic diagnoses.  That it can make us happy.

    So what is this Mindfulness stuff?  How does it work? What is some of the science behind it?  What is it good for? And how do you incorporate it into your life?

    In this webinar you will learn the core definition of mindfulness, experience several mindful practices and discover how developing a practice can benefit you and those you serve.

    Learning Objectives:

    Discover the key principles of mindfulness

    Learn what mindfulness is and is not

    Explore the benefits of Mindfulness

    Resistance arises during any process of change. Wherever there are deeply held beliefs and habitual thoughts and behaviors, there will always be ambivalence about true transformation. This is especially true in the case of thoughts and behaviors related to food, eating, and our bodies.

    Rather than viewing resistance as a problem, however, it can be seen as an essential teacher and ultimately part of the transformation. Further, we will explore how mindfulness practices can support our ability to engage resistance, both our own and that of our clients, by helping us re-frame how we see it and how we work with it in an ongoing way.

    In recent years, more and more people worldwide have turned to bariatric surgery to treat medical problems like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea that may be associated with weight. Many people who seek bariatric surgery struggle with emotional eating, binge eating, body image distress, and other eating disorder symptoms that are not resolved by bariatric surgery.

    Mindful eating approaches can help those who are planning to undergo surgery or who have already undergone surgery, to develop a more balanced, peaceful relationship with food and eating. In this webinar, we will briefly review bariatric surgery, the typical ways that bariatric surgery procedures impact eating, and how mindful eating skills and practices can be successfully adopted by people undergoing bariatric surgery.

    * Please note that this webinar does not promote or advocate bariatric surgery. It is being offered in recognition that mindful eating teachers and clinicians sometimes have clients who have undergone this type of surgery.

    Dr. Susan Wnuk, PhD., C. Psych, is a psychologist at the University Health Network Bariatric Surgery Program in Toronto where she provides clinical care to pre and post-bariatric surgery patients and conducts research.

    Her current areas of interest are mindfulness, emotion regulation, and the effectiveness of behavioral interventions for bariatric surgery patients. She is involved in research projects investigating psycho-social predictors of outcome in bariatric surgery patients and the effectiveness of various therapies for this population.

    Prior to joining the Bariatric Surgery Program in 2010, she worked in hospital-based eating disorder and borderline personality disorder programs. She facilitates workshops for professionals and presents at research conferences.

    Dr. Wnuk holds an academic appointment at the University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry at the level of Assistant Professor.

    This program offers 1 CE for Dietitians.

    The Center for Mindful Eating is a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Accredited provider with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). CDR Credentialed Practitioners will receive 1 Continuing Professional Education units (CPEUs) for completion of  this program.
