Description
Weight, eating, exercise avoidance and body image concerns frequently emerge in treating non-eating disordered patients. This introductory workshop helps psychologists successfully address these issues. Cross-cultural prevalence, biological determinants, dieting, and medical and surgical treatments will be briefly discussed. Physical hunger, external cues, emotional and relationship determinants of eating will be described followed by a psychological approach to weight regulation. Research findings, case histories and policy initiatives to reduce the incidence of obesity will be presented.
Learning Objectives
1. Distinguish between genetic, physiological, and psychological determinants of weight.
2. Describe and give examples of psychological methods for regulating eating, increasing physical activity, and improving body image.
3. Describe marital, family, and cross-cultural issues affecting weight and body image.
4. Provide suggestions to parents concerned about their children's weight.
