Abstract

Childhood obesity is an epidemic that is having devastating effects on the physical and psychological health of children. The core processes of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) are explored in this paper relative to how they can be applied as interventions in an early life obesity prevention model. While reviewing research in childhood obesity intervention models, this paper proposes a study that involves conducting behavioral health consultations with mothers whose children are at high risk for becoming overweight.
