Program Details

For mental-health and health-care professionals.

Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), developed by Jean Kristeller and supported by NIH-funded research, addresses mindless and stress-related eating, disordered eating patterns, and obesity through the application of mindfulness meditation. This workshop provides intensive training in the application of the MB-EAT intervention program in clinical settings.

Informed by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction work and the principles of food-intake regulation, the MB-EAT program employs mindfulness meditation, eating exercises, didactic instruction, and self-reflection to cultivate awareness and a more balanced and positive relationship to eating and weight.

Those with a substantive mindfulness meditation practice and related professional/clinical experience with eating issues are eligible to receive the full manual and are qualified to teach the MB-EAT program. Others receive an introduction to the practices of MB-EAT and gain valuable tools, approaches, and information to integrate into their work with others.

Note Tuition includes the Eating for Awareness CD set. Attendance at this workshop does not automatically qualify you to teach the MB-EAT program, but you will receive skills and tools to integrate into clinical practice. For more information, e-mail registration@kripalu.org or call 866.200.5203.
