About the Course

French Toast for Breakfast explores in depth how to help clients declare peace with their emotional eating problems. Ms. Cohen believes everyone’s eating disorder is as unique as a fingerprint, and she offers an individualized and comprehensive plan that clinicians can implement for each client. Ms. Cohen, who has been in Director of The New York Center for Eating Disorders for 50 years, provides structured questionnaires that both therapists and clients can use to determine the right path of recovery for them. She explores the fear of success which often leads to relapse, how to decode the fear of fat, the role of grief, anger, and sexuality, and the latest cutting edge information on medication. Replete with case examples from her practice, this book will offer clinicians strategies and techniques to help clients effectively declare peace with eating problems and the underlying psychological issues that fuel them.

This course is based on the book, French Toast for Breakfast: Declaring Peace With Emotional Eating – Updated created by Mary Anne Cohen, L.C.S.W. in 2016.
