NP0014 Diets and Our DemonsThis blog focuses on discussion regarding the course NP0014 Diets and Our Demons.
Welcome to “Diets and Our Demons,” a 4-week webcast series, which will cover a variety of perspectives about helping clients maintain mental and physical health.01.17.2012 Posted In: NP0014 Diets and Our Demons By Psychotherapy Networker
In this first session with Judith Matz, the director of the Chicago Center for Overcoming Overeating, she will present some of the research that shows that dieting is actually counterproductive. Matz will discuss why the practices of attuned eating and weight acceptance can offer a more effective substitute to conventional dieting techniques.
After each webcast session, a Comment Board will be provided so that all of you can share reflections on what you’ve learned, or any questions you may have. We believe these forums create a sense of community of learning and help inspire each other. Please take a few moments to comment on what was most interesting or relevant to you, and we encourage you to include your name and hometown with your comments.
Thank you so much for your participation, and welcome to this relevant series. If you ever have any technical questions or issues, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
