About this event

Do you find that in times of stress or difficult emotions you turn to food as a comfort or escape? Do you want to break the cycle, and learn how to develop a better relationship with stress as well as with food?

In this research-based, interactive virtual workshop, facilitated by Dr. Elizabeth Chamberlain, licensed psychologist at the CU Wellness Clinic at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC) and wellness officer with the CU Department of Psychiatry, participants will learn:

  • How stress eating starts
  • Ways to identify triggers
  • Strategies to help manage the stress eating cycle

The Stress Eating Workshop includes four weekly Monday sessions in May (May 2, 9, 16, 23), 5 - 6 p.m. Workshop sessions are held virtually via Zoom.

Is this a weight loss program?

The Stress Eating Workshop is not designed as a weight loss program, however, in similar programs, some participants have found that they lost weight. Participants will instead work on mindfulness and behavioral strategies, rather than focusing on weight loss as a goal.

What is the Stress Less Series?

The Stress Less Series is a specialized virtual workshop series facilitated by Dr. Elizabeth Chamberlain, licensed psychologist at the CU Wellness Clinic at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center. The Stress Less Series is comprised of the Stress Eating Workshop and the Stress Less, Sleep Better Workshop. Workshops are scheduled throughout the year, including "special edition" workshops.

We all experience stress. Our physical, mental or emotional reactions to certain situations can vary widely and produce a range of responses that are often not beneficial to our overall wellbeing. Particants will explore how and why stress impacts us and strategies to manage our stress.

How are workshops conducted?

All workshop sessions take place virtually via Zoom. Prior to all sessions, participants will be emailed the necessary information and Zoom link for each meeting.

Can I take workshops more than once?

Absolutely. Participants can refresh and help solidify strategies and personal understanding by taking workshops more than once.
