If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ilana Spilka.

This talk is based on the results of a small pilot study, in which specifically targeted Positive Psychological Interventions (PPI’s) promoted short-term improvement in the positive mental health, happiness and weight loss outcomes of class 2 and class 3 obese women. These results are discussed in the context of the current obesity problem, and promote the idea that PPI ’s are a potentially useful adjunct to current treatment strategies for obesity.

This talk is part of the The obesity epidemic: Discussing the global health crisis series.
