If you have clients who have tried to lose weight before and struggled to take it off or keep it off, beat themselves up repeatedly, or just struggled to find meaning and vitality in the healthy habits they were trying to build, there is an alternative.This workshop presents a different path to weight loss, and more healthy living in general, through behavior change techniques from ACT.The ACT approach is a compassionate one. You will learn techniques to help your clients change their habits humanely, with a focus on getting in touch with how being healthy fits broadly into a life worth living.In this webinar you will learn how to conceptualize weight-related issues from a contextual behavioral science stance, learn new techniques for teaching mindfulness, acceptance, defusion, and values to weight-loss treatment seeking clients, and participate in exercises designed to show you how to approach weight issues from an ACT perspective.These techniques are based on a growing body of literature that has successfully used ACT methods to support weight loss, healthier diet, and increased physical activity, including research conducted by the presenter.
