Lori Granger's groups

Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training

Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) is a small group approach to emotional/binge eating. It is structured on the (MB-EAT) originated by Dr. Jean Kristeller at the Center for Integrative Medicine at Duke University and supported by a 1.8 million National Institute of Health grant. Kristeller says "Binge eating represents a fundamental breakdown between body and mind." The goal of the program is to enable compulsive over eaters to regain control in their relationship with food through the use of mindfulness meditation techniques. The guided meditations will be taught in a small group setting.
