This revolutionary new framework helps your clients transform the “shame cycles” of bingeing and dieting, emotional overeating, and negative body image into a nourishing and satisfying relationship with food and their bodies—for good!


“I’m too fat.” “I’m on a diet.” “Today is a cheat day.” "Once I lose weight, I’ll be happier.” “My eating is out of control.”

This kind of language runs rampant in our society because the diet culture constantly tells us that thinner bodies are the most desirable and that certain foods and ways of eating are “good,” while others are “bad” …

Our culture shames millions of men, women, boys, and girls into an unhealthy—and often abusive—relationship with food and their bodies.

Your clients who struggle with weight and food issues get caught in a vortex of shame, preoccupation, and hopelessness. Trapped between the rigidity of dieting and the chaos of overeating, every day can be an emotional battle that may result in low self-worth, eating disorders, anxiety or depression.
 
Help Your Clients Break the Chains of Diet Culture

It’s clear we need a new way forward through the devastating and all-too-common problems caused by diet culture…

Up until now, there’s been a shortage of good information about effective methods!

But now there’s a new framework you can use with your clients that is effective in transforming the diet shame into empowerment... ending out of control eating for good.

Best-selling author and psychodynamic therapist Judith Matz, LCSW will teach you this proven framework...

Equipping you with treatment strategies and tools to help your clients challenge unhelpful thoughts and feelings, repair dysfunctional relationships with food, and improve their overall health.

This groundbreaking online course gives you cutting-edge, research-based information on disordered eating and diet culture… so you can help your clients transform their relationship with food and their bodies from one of shame, restriction, and fear into one of ease, comfort, confidence, and nourishing satisfaction.
 
Here’s What’s Included in the Course
 
This comprehensive online course on Emotional Eating, Chronic Dieting, Bingeing and Body Image is broken down into two modules. Through step-by-step instruction, you’ll discover:
Assessment
  • 3 crucial questions to ask at intake
  • The differences between Binge Eating Disorder (BED), emotional overeating and disordered eating
  • Subclinical disordered eating patterns
The Root of the Problem
  • Why dieting doesn’t work
  • How to handle shame around food and body size
  • Why weight loss is NOT the answer
Moving Clients from Shame to Empowerment: Treatment Strategies that Work
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Mindfulness practices
  • Self-compassion skills
  • Attuned eating
  • The Health at Every Size (HAES) approach
Clinical Considerations
  • How therapists may inadvertently contribute to fat shaming
  • Considerations regarding individual vs. group therapy
  • Limitations of the research and potential risks
Through these modules Judith Matz, LCSW, will help you master the skills to:
  • Identify issues related to food, weight, and body image from your first session
  • Understand why clients get stuck in the diet-binge cycle and how to finally break it
  • Engage, support, and help your clients repair their dysfunctional relationship with food and their bodies—no willpower necessary!
  • Help your clients respond to well-meaning—yet harmful—weight loss “compliments”
  • Discover your own hidden biases and ingrained cultural stereotypes about weight that could negatively impact your clients’ treatment
  • Share simple mindfulness practices that can help reduce emotional eating
  • Determine if individual or group therapy would best serve your clients
  • Help clients develop a healthy framework that ends out-of-control eating without being beholden to fad diets and self-punishment
  • And SO much more!
 
You’ll also receive access to essential tools such as:
  • Hunger Fullness Scale: Helps to identify the physical cues of hunger and satiation
  • Hunger Matching List: Identifies the kinds of tastes and textures you’re craving so you can choose the foods that will satisfy your needs in that moment
  • Patient assessment form: Determine if your clients and patients have a Binge Eating Disorder (BED) or emotional overeating problem
  • AIM Protocol: This handy acronym aids patients in eating intuitively so they can nourish their body and soul
  • Writing prompts to help you and your patients truly understand your relationship to food, dieting, and body image
  • Self-assessments to help you uncover and transform any subconscious/unrealized biases you may have toward higher-weight people—including your clients and patients—so you can better serve them
  • A paradigm-shifting framework that takes the focus off weight loss and shifts it to developing a healthy relationship with food. When this happens, weight loss is often a side effect, but it’s not the goal.

Having these tools in your toolbox gives you an edge over other therapists still using outdated—and ineffective—methods to help their clients…

...And will help your clients develop a positive relationship with food and their bodies FASTER and EASIER than you ever thought possible.

When you order this online course, you’ll have unlimited, lifetime access to the videos, forums and materials... 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, forever.
