Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) is a 12-session group program that runs for 2.5 hours for nine consecutive weeks, with the tenth session held a fortnight after, then two booster sessions each held a month apart. MB-EAT sessions will be run in the evening: typically 5.30pm-8.00pm. As part of this program, you will be required to complete questionnaires at multiple time-points. You will also be asked to participate in home-based practice of meditation.

The MB-EAT program will be conducted by Clinical Psychologist Dr Trish Melzer, and Provisional Psychologist Ruth Lonie, who is currently undertaking her Master of Clinical Psychology degree at our Bundoora campus.

Before taking part, you will be required to attend a 1.5-2 hour assessment to determine your eligibility.
