Saturday Scoop: A Key Skill for Sustained Weight Loss: Self-Care
60-minute group led by a different provider each week who will cover a different weight-management related topic such as exercise, adequate protein intake, or coping with emotions
Group discussion to follow
Do you sometimes struggle to get enough sleep, keep needed medical appointments, have time with friends, or have a creative outlet? Recognizing and addressing your self-care needs is KEY to achieving sustained weight loss. Many people have trouble in this area due to the stresses of difficult jobs, family demands, long commutes, and limited energy. Some of us never really learned how to take care of our needs, or don’t believe we deserve good care. Join clinical psychologist, Rachel Burnett, PhD, to help identify and strengthen your self-care skills.
Saturdays 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Fee: Free for active Comprehensive Program patients; $35 per session for all others. Prepayment package discounts available.
