The psychology of obesity surgery

A session at Café Scientifique: The psychology of obesity surgery

  • Professor Jane Ogden

Tuesday 19th July, 2011

8:00pm to 9:00pm (GMT)

Obesity surgery is currently the most effective form of intervention for the obese and results in greater loss of excess weight than either diet or medication. Although a surgical form of management, surgery raises many psychological issues in terms of why people chose this form of intervention and why it works for some people and not form others. This talk will explore the psychological of obesity and address issues such as emotional eating, substitute behaviours, self control and surgery as a form of internal nanny state that can be liberating for some and a force to be rebelled against for others.
