Description

In Weight Loss and Control, Dr. Ann Mary Kearney-Cooke demonstrates her approach to helping clients with issues about weight. Clients who have concerns about weight typically go through a cycle of dieting and bingeing. Dr. Kearney-Cooke works with clients to stop this unhealthy pattern by teaching them self-regulatory skills as well as forming realistic weight loss goals. She uses a cognitive–behavioral approach combined with interpersonal therapy, as oftentimes, clients overeat in part because of relationship issues.

In this session, Dr. Kearney-Cooke works with a client who has struggled with losing weight for many years. Following the birth of her child almost 1 year ago, the client reports that she lost a lot of weight; however, she has been unable to keep the weight off and is now interested in developing healthy eating habits and learning how to maintain weight loss. Dr. Kearney-Cooke takes an inventory of the client's history, her strengths, and her daily demands and resources. Dr. Kearney-Cooke then teaches her strategies for portion control as well as ways to set boundaries around mealtime that will result in more mindful eating.
