Presented by Caroline Baerten, MA, RD

For several decades the interventions for eating disorders, (AN, BED, BN), were dominated by a behavioral cognitive approach based on scientific studies using this angle. In the past ten years there has been a new wave in research: mindfulness and compassion-based interventions are receiving more attention. Along with this, mindful eating has become an effective tool for patients on the spectrum of restrictive eating and binge eating.

In this two-part webinar series, we will discuss and practice different mindfulness, mindful eating and compassion-based exercises which benefit people with eating disorders and those with unbalanced eating habits.

The participants will be able to list the different mindful eating, mindfulness and compassion-based meditations developed for individuals with eating disorders (AN, BN, BED) and describe their specific features.

The attendees will be able to select the best practices for use in their specific professional context and according the patient profile on the spectrum of disturbed eating behavior.

After practicing the mindful eating, mindfulness and compassion-based exercises in week 1, the attendees will be able to better embody different cognitive-affective mindfulness qualities which will benefit their patients with eating disorders.

By assessing the treat-drive-caring system (based on research of Paul Gilbert, PhD), health professionals can demonstrate new compassion-based approaches for their clients and to calm down the treat-drive system.
