Psychologists are experts in helping people make the behavioral and lifestyle changes that assist with weight management. But while many patients know to focus on eating less and exercising more to lose weight, they don’t always recognize that a major aspect of weight control involves understanding and managing thoughts and behaviors that can interfere with weight loss.

A new fact sheet from APA educates consumers and health care professionals about how psychologists help patients manage their weight. To make photocopies for distribution and outreach activities, download this fact sheet and other client resources from the Psychology Help Center.
