Others may be able to answer your question better than I can but, yes, I would say that he will get into ways to overcome emotional eating.
For example, from page 193:
"Each time you use a nonfood way to deal with problems and feelings, you cut the link to using food as a tranquilizer, you get stronger and more powerful, and that's our goal. When you have chosen alternatives to food enough times, your confidence will grow, and food will no longer be the obvious or only choice for how to deal with life."
Before this part, he puts one through a long process so that when you get to this paragraph, you have alternatives (tools) to use instead of eating.
Further on, he talks about things I find really true for myself, such as:
I'm a phony.
I'm a pretend adult and don't deserve the full rights of adulthood.
I know the good stuff about me isn't real.
The above lies that our head tells us (and we believe) reinforce our self doubts and send us straight to food.
One of the goals is to capture the pause before you overeat.
I have jumbled up a lot of different stuff and I have over-simplified things here but, as usual, we have to do the work and there is no simple list of do this, this and this--and then, viola, you won't overeat.
Welcome, Jill! Let's see what we can do to get closer to overcoming emotional eating.
