The workshop provides an overview of an original therapeutic approach for addressing emotional overeating. Somov offers a provocative clinical thesis: emotional eating is not a problem, it is emotional overeating that is a problem; or, stated differently: emotional eating is not a problem, mindless emotional eating is a problem. This unique approach is grounded in harm-reduction psychology and utilizes mindfulness-based and metacognitive clinical know-how. The approach is more than just a humanistic “cultural permission” to eat emotionally – it is an experiential curriculum designed to prevent shame-triggered relapses, to help clients recognize that emotional eating is a legitimate and intuitive form of self- care, and to position clients to “leverage more coping per calorie.”
