CBT for Weight Loss and Management

Posted: Jun 24, 2015 in June 2015

This week I am off to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to attend a workshop at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy.  Judith Beck, Ph.D. and her daughter, Deborah Beck Busis, have adapted the the Cognitive Behavior Therapy approach to address weight loss and management.  Their evidence based approach includes strategies aimed at modifying thinking and behavior to facilitate permanent changes in eating behaviors.  Having read both the Beck Diet Solution and The Diet Trap Solution (both by the aforementioned Dr. Judith Beck and Deborah Beck Busis) I am eager to learn more from these clinicians about new ways to apply these tools to help my patients!  I will look forward to sharing my knowledge with you upon my return.
