Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus Offers Self-Help Group for Children Suffering with Obesity

The Nutrition and Diet Clinic of Hadassah Hospital- Mount Scopus is hosting a new self-help group for children who suffer from obesity and their parents.

The clinic aims to help children who engage in "emotional eating"--eating which is unrelated to hunger.

The goal is to lead these children to develop more self-awareness and alleviate their feelings of anxiety and guilt about their obesity through a change in behavioral patterns. In addition, children and their parents will learn about the consequences of childhood obesity during this eight-session program.
