How we can help ourselves, and our patients, heal unhealthy relationships with food and eating.

Leveraging findings from habit change science as well as mindfulness practice, the behavior change model Dr. Jud Brewer will describe involves:

  • identifying the habit patterns that tether individuals to unhealthy eating habits;
  • interrupting those habit patterns using awareness (as opposed to willpower, which has not been shown to sustain long-term behavior change);
  • using built-in mechanisms of the brain to overwrite those unhealthy habit patterns with newer, healthier ones.

In doing so, eating and food will cease to be the cause of anxiety or shame, and rather become a source of self-care, health, a pleasure, and an occasion to connect with oneself and others.

Target Audience

All members of the healthcare team including MD/DO, nurses, pharmacist, social workers and registered dieticians.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe how different types of eating habits are formed and perpetuated.
