Example text

They are intended to address obesogenic behaviour by first recognising why participants find lifestyle change so difficult and then enabling them to develop better habits. Developing emotional intelligence You may well be familiar with the term ‘emotional intelligence’ from the book by Daniel Goleman (1995). Here we are particularly concerned with the development of emotional language. There is evidence to suggest that people with eating disorders of all kinds find it difficult to express their feelings in words, a condition known as alexithymia.

We are asking them to take part in a group which explores their feelings, but are simultaneously asking them to give up their habitual way of managing feelings. Our long-term aim is to help them to learn to use other people but first they need to learn how to use themselves. We want to prevent participants being overwhelmed by their feelings and memories because we share the view of current trauma experts in thinking that such experiences can simply retraumatise rather than enable the integration of the experience.

We then go on to describe the central themes of the programme and the ways they are implemented within the programme. Aims and objectives Aims • If the data on the effects of obesity on physical and emotional well-being is taken at all seriously it seems evident that sustained weight loss Ն 5–10% of baseline weight, is the crucial result which will deliver significant benefits (Blackburn, 2002; Seidell & Tijhuis, 2002). The first aim is, therefore, to offer a lifestyle change programme which will have this result, via investigation of the meaning of eating behaviour; strategies for improving eating behaviour; improved food choice and increased activity.
