Workshop on Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Weight Loss and Maintenance

This weekend Dr. Judith Beck and I (Deborah Beck Busis, Diet Program Coordinator) presented a workshop at the Beck Institute on Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Weight Loss and Maintenance.  We had a great time teaching dieters and maintainers, diet coaches, and health and mental health professionals how we apply CBT principles and techniques to the difficult problem of overweight and obesity. We used lecture, role play, and lots of Q and A.   

Some of the topics we covered were:

  • Overview of the Beck Diet Solution Program
  • Sabotaging Thinking
  • Assessment Initiating Treatment, and Structuring Sessions
  • Pre-Dieting Skills
  • Eating Habits
  • Hunger, Craving, and Emotional Eating
  • Dealing with deprivation, discouragement, and disappointment
  • The Long Haul and Maintenance
  • Reluctant Dieters and Real Life Compromises

On their evaluation forms, participants indicated that the workshop was very helpful and we hope they will use this knowledge to enrich their work with dieters and/or themselves.  As of now, our next diet workshop at the Beck Institute is scheduled for June 2, 2012.  Check back in with us and our website, though, because we add new workshops periodically. Below is a video of me discussing the importance of staying track and getting back on track when mistakes happen:

    There are many programs out there for diet. And I think the best way to lose weight is through diet. I believe in one simple strategy. Eat more raw food and you’ll be on your way to lose weight. The biggest secret is have patience. If you’ll lose patience while losing weight then no diet plan can help you.
