About the Event

In this 60 minute presentation and discussion, you will be introduced to the Stomach Meter and the How Do I know I am Hungry assessment tool to use with your clients. You will also be introduced to the techniques for teaching a meditation practice known as Linking Emotions to Physical Sensations in the Body to help your clients recognize the physical sensations of emotions that may lead them to eat to numb difficult feelings. These practices are foundational to the Mindful Eating-Conscious Living program and have consistently proven beneficial in rediscovering a healthy and joyful relationship to food.
