Clinical Conversation: Hypnotic Suggestions of Intuitive Eating and Body Acceptance vs. Hypnosis for Weight Loss

  • Sunday, May 22, 2022
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • via Zoom


Please join us for our next Clinical Conversation, “Hypnotic Suggestions of Intuitive Eating and Body Acceptance versus Weight Loss.” This Clinical Conversation will discuss the 10 principles of “Intuitive Eating,” a concept coined by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995, which is an anti-diet approach to cultivate a healthier mindset and practice to feed one’s body.

By using one’s own intuition rather than a restrictive meal plan that often results in a feeling of failure, yo-yo weight loss and gain, binging, and low self-esteem and self-worth, this way of eating and thinking about food fosters acceptance of one’s body and trusting oneself, which ultimately allows clients to feel better about themselves and achieve the right weight for them. The conversation will include the harms of the diet industry, hypnosis for weight loss, and a culture of thinness that contribute to body dysmorphia, disordered eating, over-exercising, and eating disorders.

Metaphors, analogies, direct, and indirect hypnotic suggestions of body acceptance and intuitive eating will be presented and discussed, and then there will be time to practice using these hypnotic interventions in small groups. 

This Clinical Conversation will be led by Nicole Wegweiser, LCSW, faculty of CHSNJ, as well as Lauren Dorman, RD.  It will be held on Sunday May 22nd, from 11 AM to 1 PM EDT.   

This Zoom program is free to members of ASCH, SCEH, and the component sections.  There is a $15 fee for non-members.
