14 Nov Choices Psychotherapy Announces New Program for Binge Eating Disorder
Original Press Release Date: March 9, 2017
Choices Psychotherapy (Choices), is pleased to announce the beginning of a new program at their St. Louis Park location: Why Can’t I Stop Eating – Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Binge Eating Disorder.
Binge Eating Disorder is the most common eating disorder in America affecting more people than anorexia or bulimia.
“Why Can’t I Stop Eating?” is a program for people who have problematic overeating behaviors. These behaviors include losing control while eating and eating significantly more than what is typical of others.
The program’s purpose is to assist clients diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder to stop binging. Clients gain insight about the emotional aspects of binge eating and the function the eating disorder has served in their life. By also learning skills to regulate emotion, clients understand binge eating is no longer as useful a way to deal with problems.
“The 20-week program includes both individual therapy and a weekly skills-based group, using a Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Binge Eating Disorder curriculum. This program is not about weight loss but removes barriers for later weight loss,” Ann Trench, MSSW, LICSW, Program Director, said.
Clients can join at any time.
To schedule an appointment or to join the program, call Choices Psychotherapy at 952-544-6806.
