    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 attributed to 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.

    PRESENTED BY Linn Thostensson, Nutritonal Therapist

    Wednesday January 8,1:00 PM EST, (time zone converter)

    This webinar will provide a thorough introduction to mindful eating for people new to the idea and practice. Mindfulness is the capacity to bring full attention and awareness to one’s experience, in the moment, without judgment. Mindful Eating brings mindfulness to food choice and the experience of eating. Mindful eating helps us become aware of our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations related to eating, reconnecting us with our innate inner wisdom about hunger and satiety. Through this webinar participants will learn what mindful eating is and is not, the benefits of eating mindfully, and tools and techniques for practicing mindful eating.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understanding what Mindful Eating is & isn't
    2. The benefits of practicing Mindful Eatingh
    3. How to practice Mindful Eating in your everyday life
