A three-session program to help people deal with problematic eating behaviours will be in Dauphin.
Holly Reimer says the three dates for the craving change program are May 2nd, 9th, and 16th from 6:30-8:30 at the Dauphin Community Health Services.
Since the program is in Dauphin, PMH understands some people from farther away communities won’t be able to travel for the sessions. So through telehealth, people can participate in Ste. Rose as well.
Reimer says the first session of the Craving Change Program includes a lot of reflective activities.
“Regarding triggers for problematic eating and there’s some homework to go along with that. We teach a few different ways to think about hunger and what’s triggering problematic eating behaviours.”
In the second session, they will be talking about 10 different strategies to choose from to avoid problematic eating behaviours.
The group dynamic of the sessions will help people learn from each other.
Participants will learn how to understand why they eat the way they do, and some strategies to help deal with problematic eating behaviours. Some things people could have a problem with are what they’re eating, the amount they eat, or emotional eating when they aren’t hungry.
