Course intended for Social Workers and Mental Health Professionals
Description: Even though the DSM-V rejected obesity as a mental disease (2010), in the last 30 years more and more researchers and clinicians find more evidence about the connection between emotional eating, emotional hunger and emotional neglected to overweight and obesity. In this course attendees explore new understanding about the obesity’s epidemic, and learn how we can heal, as a professional, more people and not just helping them to manage their difficulty and illness. Beside the theoretical side, attendees will experience together a short demonstration of a “mindfulness meal” which will help us to be more emphatic to our clients. In order to change the statistic dramatically and to make a real difference for over 100 million Americans who are either obese or overweight, we must examine this field with a new pair of eyes and try to help and heal from a new direction.
Presenter: Roni Maislish, licensed clinician, has worked in the field of emotional aspect of obesity for over 15 years. When he first met overweight clients with emotional eating and long term neglect of the relation of food to mind, he knew he wanted to change something. Roni is from Israel with many years of study globally of the impacts of food on our overall being. In the last 2.5 years, he has worked in Tel Hashomer (Sheba) hospital in an overweight treatment center (part of the endocrine institute). He spent 5 years during 2006-2011 where he saw clients with eating disorders (and their parents) in Soroka Hospital. Since 2007 he has worked as an emotional eating therapist. He leads several groups for clinicians to better involve clinicians in the work they do with their clients. In 2008, he participated in a 6 days retreat in California lead by Geneen Roth (the author of the bestseller “When Food is Love”.) He is dedicated and passionate about the emotional eating of a client and dives deep to help all clinicians better understand the correlation.
- The attendees will apply the approach of obesity from a social-emotional perspective (and not just from a bio-medical perspective).
- The attendees will create a wider scale list for the different kind of process which are used by the patient as a defense mechanism relating to relationship with food and eating. This will help attendees to recite more closely and accurately the self-object’s needs that weren’t fulfilled.
- The attendees will predict what kind of reactions could arise inside of them (counter-transfer) while they compile emphatically different aspects of their patient’s relationship with food and eating.
- The attendees will identify both theoretical and clinical, how the self-psychology’s paradigm is being practiced trough the relationship with food and eating of the patients.
