Description

Currently, 31.8% of North Carolina residents have a weight that would meet criteria for obesity. Binge and overeating increase the risk for obesity, which is associated with numerous co-morbid conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and various cancers. Binge eating is described as having episodes of eating large amounts while experiencing a sense of loss of control overeating. In contrast, overeating typically refers to eating more than intended, and does not involve loss of control. A specific CBT intervention, Appetite Awareness Training (AAT), has been successful in aiding participants to reduce binge eating and overeating. AAT includes instruction on emotional eating, understanding biological signals of hunger and satiety, and has aided in weight maintenance.

This program will examine factors (e.g., trauma, stress, depression) that may increase binge and overeating in our clients, with particular emphasis on clients who are low income, and identify as members of a racial/ethnic minority group. Recommendations for assessment will be provided. Finally, this presentation will include an overview of AAT, and provide clinicians with brief training on specific intervention components that may provide clients coping skills to increase self-care and decrease binge and overeating.
