Led by Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW, participants will learn how to implement a cognitive behavioral treatment program for weight loss and maintenance through an experiential two-day workshop designed for dieters and individuals who work with dieters. In this workshop, which is based on The Beck Diet Solution and The Diet Trap Solution, participants will learn evidence-based strategies aimed at modifying their clients’ thinking and behavior so they can make permanent changes in their eating. Participants will learn how to conceptualize the difficulties their clients face and plan strategies to handle them effectively.
