Food has become complicated.  We are inundated with contradictory messages every day. Couple that with an obesity-phobic culture, and it’s no wonder our children and adolescents experience a rise in anxiety around food, declining body shape satisfaction, and increased risk of developing Binge Eating Disorder.

Through this workshop, you will learn how to distinguish between clinically significant binge eating versus common, every day over-eating. We will also discuss common dynamics within a family culture that may unintentionally reinforce negative eating patterns and body shape dissatisfaction. Lastly, tools, strategies, and role plays will be offered to help you work more effectively with these clients.

Class size is limited to 40.
