ABOUT this project

You could have the opportunity to work with a team of psychologists, kinesiologists and dieticians to work collaboratively to help improve your overall health and wellness. 

We believe there are many factors, that may be different for each person, that can contribute to challenges in maintaining a healthy body weight. We want to see if addressing some of these factors through a therapy known as dialectical behavior therapy will help improve behavior change. 

Check out our resources page if you want to learn more about dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). 


Below is our theoretical framework, basically a visual representation of the study. It illustrates what we think some of the root causes of obesity are, the possible treatment options that we will provide in this study, and the results that we predict will occur.
