I had seriously thought about going to the workshop, however it seems that it is to remain a dream. Thank heavens I have the books and all of you here at SP.

I don't think you'd find it repetitive after reading the book. I do a lot of cognitive behavioral therapy and have been to a lot of workshops. And at each one there are new ideas to learn. Judith Beck is one that it would be good to see and hear. Most of the professionals will have a lot of background, so it for sure will have more information and ideas.

"Ever since I wrote the two diet books and workbook, I've been inundated with requests for workshops on the topic. We held a one-day workshop in September 2009 and now we're planning a new diet workshop for January 29, 2011. I continue to learn daily from dieters (those I counsel, those who email me, and those who post messages on the internet about their experiences using the program). I also continue to learn by reading research, attending conferences, and discussing weight loss and maintenance with colleagues worldwide.

The January workshop will be oriented both toward dieters and toward the people who work with them: mental health and health professionals, diet and exercise coaches, nutritionists and registered dieticians. I have updated my ideas and will talk about the four stages of weight loss and maintenance:

1.Getting ready--learning basic cognitive and behavioral skills (and very importantly, how dieters can motivate themselves to use these skills even when they don't feel like it).
2.Learning how to eat according to a schedule--because most dieters never master eating healthily, moderately AND spontaneously.
3.Changing what dieters eat--making small, reasonable changes that they can keep up for life.
4.Motivating dieters to keep up these changes for life.

In my program, there is no such thing as distinct dieting and maintenance phases. Once dieters reach their ideal weight range (that is, the lowest weight they maintain--plus about five pounds--while they are eating a healthy, lifetime diet), they just keep on doing exactly what they've been doing.
And of course, there will be a heavy emphasis on changing dieters’ thinking and teaching them exactly what to do when:

▪they're feeling unmotivated, deprived, discouraged, disappointed, and upset
▪they're feeling hungry or have cravings and it's not time to eat
▪they make a mistake and are tempted to go off the wagon they don't feel like staying on the program

We'll discuss mindfulness, acceptance, and motivational techniques and do lots of roleplaying to illustrate various strategies. We'll also talk about real-life compromises for people who are unable or unwilling to follow the whole program."

I would love to go to something like that! I could handle the fee, but the travel cost would be a lot, and I can't afford to be away from home because then I have to cancel students and that is more money lost! (And we are already going to a wedding in a few months. And to our son's for Thanksgiving! Traveling makes me nervous - mostly because my regular life falls behind! I'm a little bit of a work-a-holic.)

But I'm glad you shared the info Anuschka. If anyone decides to go, our team will want to hear ALL about it!!!

Sparkfully Yours, Judi

Dear Spark Friends, I may not always write back about everything each person posts, but I am really interested in you! If you ever need me, send me a Spark Mail and I will always answer!

Yes, Nancy. The class description includes dieters not just health professionals or teachers.

I went back and reread the info and it said that the workshop is:
"A one day diet solution workshop for dieters, professionals, and others who work with dieters."

But I wonder if after using the the books, would it be helpful or just repetitive.
I should send them an email and ask.

I would love to go, but I don't live on the east coast. The transportation would make it too much of an expense. I've seen her workshops listed in some of my professional materials. I wish she would come to the Midwest. It would be easier for me to get there.

It is great that she is giving this to TEACH Health Professionals. (They can write the cost of attending off their income tax or even get it paid for by the company they work for.) But, I'm glad to see that she is spreading the word to them, since it is SO important.

Thanks for the info....

Ah the gift of a healthy lifestyle.

I wish I could afford it, too... and that it was closer to home. I don't know if any team members live near PA. If so, I thought they might be interested.

I think that is great for those who can afford. But it too pricey for me now. I did a faith walk when I ordered the book and workbook. Costa near 70 dollars total. Ordered thur our local book store.

Dr. Judith Beck's Diet Workshop, January 29, 2011

A one day diet solution workshop for dieters, professionals, and others who work with dieters.

A word from Dr. Beck:

It's hard to stick to a diet, especially if one has never learned how to change fundamental thoughts about food, eating and the self. Typically, unhelpful thoughts about hunger, craving, unfairness and deprivation get in the way, and it can be challenging to deal with emotional eating, disappointment, discouragement, and stressful times.

This workshop is based on The Complete Beck Diet for Life and The Beck Diet Solution. I wrote both these books to teach dieters how to diet, for example, how to create a flexible and healthy eating plan that can be followed for life, and how to quickly get back on track following a lapse.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to make lifetime changes in thinking in order to make permanent changes in eating behavior. Practical, useful techniques will be demonstrated by roleplaying with volunteers from the audience.

I always tell dieters: "It's not your fault that you've had trouble in the past. You never learned how to diet. This time will be different."

DATE: January 29, 2011

TIME: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
