    A confidential Supervision Session with Ronna Kabatznick, Ph.D

    Monday, January 27, 2020, 6 PM, EST    (time zone converter)

    Space is limited to 4 mindful eating professionals.

    Please register only if you can attend the live, unrecorded event. 

    Are there frustrations or pressing issues that you experience when working with mindful eating clients?  Would you like to know how they can be skillfully transformed into healing opportunities for both you and your clients?

    Following Dr. Kabatznick's highly successful TCME webinars, professional TCME members have asked for more detailed  recommendations and guidance on applying mindful eating topics to private practice and professional settings. 

    How  to work with clients who:

    • Use food as a form of self-betrayal, and self-hatred,?

    • Chronically relapse or who report feeling like a bottomless pit?

    • Have been traumatized and use food to numb their pain or quell their emotional appetites? 

    These sessions will explore the spiritual tools that can we offer clients to provide emotional nourishment that no amount of physical food can provide. 

    To foster trust and open discussion among participants each 75 minute session is limited to 4 professionals only and will not be recorded.  Please register only if you can attend the live event.

    The BASICS of Mindful Eating webinar is a two-part series which teaches you the skills you need to eat mindfully and provides a useful tool for teaching others. The BASICS of Mindful Eating is a component of the Eat for Life Program, developed by the presenter as a guide for each time you sit down to eat.

    The steps of the BASICS take you from the pause before you eat to the point where you are guided internally to stop eating. Mindfulness meditation and movement practice are at the foundation of eating mindfully and will be taught and offered as a home practice for the week between sessions.

    In the second part of the series there will be a discussion about what you experienced with the practices. The overarching principles of mindful eating and research that highlights the benefits of mindful eating on emotional eating and binge eating will be reviewed. The necessity of deepening your mindfulness and mindful eating practice in order to teach it as well as supporting resources will be discussed.

    Lynn Rossy, Ph.D., is an author and health psychologist who specializes in offering mindfulness-based interventions for mindful eating, moving, and living. She is the Executive Director of Tasting Mindfulness, LLC. after spending much of her career at the University of Missouri. She developed an empirically validated mindfulness-based intuitive eating program called Eat for Life which helps people have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies—decreasing binge eating while increasing body image, mindfulness, and intuitive eating. She teaches her class live onlive over Zoom to professionals and the general public and travels nationally and internationally to train professionals.

    Dr. Rossy published the concepts from the program in a book entitled, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution: Proven Strategies to End Overeating, Satisfy Your Hunger and Saor Your Life (New Harbinger, July 2016). Her book was named on of the top ten books of 2016 by Mindful.Org.

    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 into your work?

    In part 1 of this two-part webinar series will explore how the role of food and the definition of nutrition change when viewed through the lens of mindful eating and how to provide nutrition education in a way that is also consistent with the spirit of mindful eating.

    Part 2 of this two-part webinar series will explore practical strategies for providing mindfulness-inspired nutrition education to specific populations, such as those with chronic health conditions, food intolerances and allergies, and a history of disordered eating or eating disorders.

    Learning Objectives

    • Compare and contrast more traditional perceptions of nutrition and nutrition education with those inspired by mindful eating.
    • Identify nutrition education tools and strategies that support changes in eating behavior while also being consistent with the spirit of mindful eating.
    • Describe useful strategies for providing mindfulness-inspired nutrition education to specific populations, such as those with chronic health conditions, food intolerances and allergies, and a history of disordered eating or eating disorders.

    Dana Notte is a non-diet dietitian and nutrition educator who aims to help people heal their relationship to food, body, and self through non-diet, weight-inclusive, and mindfulness-based approaches. She specializes in working with individuals seeking support to heal from chronic dieting, disordered eating, and eating disorders. Additionally, she actively presents at conferences and professional trainings on topics related to mindful eating and non-diet approaches to care.

    Dana is the owner of ThrivInspired Nutrition, a Burlington, VT based nutrition counseling practice offering individual in-person and virtual nutrition counseling services, group workshops, and community, corporate, and professional speaking services. She is also part-time faculty at the University of Vermont where she teaches in the Nutrition and Food Sciences Department.

    Recognized as an expert in the field, Dana has been quoted in several major publications including TIME, Reader’s Digest, Health, and EatingWell.

    Outside of her professional work, you can find Dana in her kitchen experimenting with new ingredients and creating new recipes, with her nose in a Lonely Planet book planning her next international adventure, practicing staying present on the mat at the yoga studio, or enjoying all that the outdoors of VT have to offer.

    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. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. The participants will be able to list the different mindful eating, mindfulness and compassion-based meditations developed for individuals with eating disorders (AN, BN, BED) 
    2. By assessing the treat-drive-caring system (Paul Gilbert, PhD), health professionals can demonstrate new compassion-based approaches for their clients and to calm down the treat-drive system. 
    3. Through neuroscience and up-to-date research in mindfulness, the attendees will be able to understand and embody different cognitive-affective mindfulness qualities
