If you think you could benefit from a referral to the WestView PCN’s Obesity Clinic,

Relapse Prevention (RP) Group via Zoom March 2021 - March 2022

Gaining the ability to manage one's weight is difficult. However, learning how to continue the journey or maintain the end result can often seem equally challenging. Join us monthly for a 1.5-hour workshop to further develop your weight management tools and understanding of factors that can hinder or stall your weight loss. This workshop will focus on selected topics, cognitive behavioural skills, and reflections on self­care and personal growth. This program is recommended for those who have been in the program for 6 or more months but may be considered by the PCN team for others in the Obesity Clinic program based on personal suitability. See the dates and details below.

Call 780-960-9533 Ext. 234 to book your Class.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Large Group Session 2021 via Zoom

Gaining the ability to have perspective on our unhelpful ways of thinking is the pinnacle of cognitive behavioural therapy. Exploring our underlying foundational beliefs in conjunction with recognizing our hurtful self-statements is a powerful tool in managing your weight management struggles. This workshop will focus on the link between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours which will allow for moments of understanding and consequently the ability to let go of past harmful behaviours. This program is recommended for all patients in the Obesity Clinic regardless of time in the program.

To be added to the group please call 780.960.9533 Ext. 234
