Find a Binge Eating Disorder Therapist

By Michelle May, M.D.

The Am I Hungry?® Mindful Eating for Binge Eating Program is a clinically valid treatment that has been shown to stop binge eating. The program draws on strategies from mindfulness-based therapeutic methods, such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), which have been shown to be effective for treating binge eating disorder. Mindfulness-based strategies are used to target affect regulation, counteract dissociation from emotional awareness, and slow the impulsive nature of binge eating.

Our Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating for Binge Eating (AIH ME-BE) Therapist Training is for licensed Masters and Doctorate level behavioral health professionals and eating disorder treatment teams (such as dietitians, nurses, and physicians) who wish to offer a mindful eating program for the treatment of binge eating disorder. We have offered four trainings so far and plan to offer the next one in the fall!
