Binge eating is a defiant attempt to reclaim autonomy in response to a perceived social pressure to diet. This workshop presents a groundbreaking approach that combines autonomy support and cognitive-behavioral techniques to resolve the conflict between independence and belonging and promote a true sense of autonomous control over food choices.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how the perception of social pressure to diet can cause emotional eating
  2. Identify the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral traits that are associated with emotional eating
  3. Explain the balance model and apply the concept to help clients identify and resolve the core conflict that causes emotional eating
