Robard Corporation, a leading provider of weight loss programs and products, offers a wealth of tools and education opportunities to arm weight management professionals with the knowledge and skills to treat patients and grow their business, including continuing education credits and webcasts featuring leading experts in the field of obesity management.
On Wednesday, April 10, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. — 1:45 p.m. (Eastern Time), LD Lumpkin, LCSW, will be the featured presenter for the latest broadcast of Robard Corporation’s free webcast series. Lumpkin, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, will present a live webcast to discuss how a psychotherapeutic process called Cognitive Restructuring can be used in a weight loss setting to help patients reduce negative feelings and improve weight loss results.
Psychologists have known for decades that a person’s thoughts directly influence their feelings and ultimately their actions. Overweight and obese patients often have negative thoughts about themselves, and can habitually criticize their weight, appearance and intellect. This behavior ultimately has a harmful effect on weight loss results and a patient’s continued success. With professional help, Cognitive Restructuring can help these patients understand how thoughts influence feelings and arm them with the tools to change negative thoughts into positives to achieve better weight loss results.
“Weight loss can be achieved in a variety of different ways,” says Lumpkin. “To maintain weight loss, one needs to identify and replace negative thoughts which impact eating.”
