Utilizing Social and Cognitive Psychology for Improving Obesity Treatment
Jeremy Clorfene, Ph.D.
The journey of losing weight and keeping it off is littered with enormous challenges. Our society and our own brain exert forces that pull us towards highly palatable processed food, making weight control a formidable task. Using traditional dietary approaches alone may limit effectiveness of obesity treatment. During this webinar, participants will explore the many social and cognitive forces that impact how we think, behave, and make food choices. Attendees will learn how incorporating tools and techniques that are rooted in social and cognitive psychology in weight control interventions may positively influence outcomes and overall health.
