Compulsive overeating can be a difficult issue to tackle for psychologists, licensed mental health professionals, medical professionals, or ministry leaders. Often, this issue can lead to obesity and multiple other health factors that can discourage the client from making changes. This workshop will cover issues related to compulsive overeating through an addiction framework. The presenter will explore behavior, cognitions, emotions, relationships, and spiritual issues for Christian clients that can exacerbate compulsive eating and keep clients in an addictive pattern. In this workshop, participants will be able to learn new therapeutic interventions to bring help and hope to those who are suffering.

Learning Objectives

1. Describe compulsive overeating from an addiction perspective
2. Identify therapeutic interventions and biblically based spiritual tools to help behaviors, cognitions, emotions, and relationships in recovery for Christian clients
3. Apply therapy knowledge to eating disorders treatment
