He is an Extension Instructor at U. C. Berkeley and was a Visiting Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at United Medical and Dental Schools, University of London. Dr. Abramson has appeared on dozens of TV and radio programs including 20/20, Hard Copy, and Joan Rivers. His work is routinely noted in publications including The New York Times; O, The Oprah Magazine; Parents Magazine and Fitness.

He frequently presents continuing education workshops for health professionals and gives keynotes and talks to parent groups, educators, and the general public.

Speaking Topics
  • Help Your Child Develop Healthy Eating and Activity Habits

    Parents often are concerned about their children’s eating habits and lack of physical activity but knowing how to help children develop healthy eating and activity habits can be tricky. Do you forbid junk food and snacks? Make the child eat vegetables? Limit TV viewing and computer use? This entertaining presentation will show you how eating and activity patterns develop. You’ll learn how to guide your child to healthy habits without creating a battle of wills or risking an eating disorder. What Participants Will Achieve:
    • An understanding of how eating and exercise patterns develop throughout childhood
    • Awareness of early signs of unhealthy eating and activity behaviors
    • Specific, age-appropriate methods you can use to encourage healthy eating and activity habits

  • Overcoming Emotional Eating

    Overview: Whether it takes the form of an uncontrolled eating binge or just unnecessary snacking, emotional eating causes weight gain, guilty feelings, and undermines any efforts to lose weight. In this presentation Dr. Abramson will share real-life examples and show you how to accurately assess your unique patterns. You’ll learn practical methods for changing these habits and find out how to nurture yourself without eating. What Participants Will Achieve:
    • Recognition of the different emotions that trigger their urge to eat
    • Overcoming the guilt and shame associated with emotional eating
    • An individualized plan for self-nurturing without food

  • 6 Laws of Permanent Weight Loss

    Overview: Using self-assessment tools presented in this workshop, you will learn how to get off the dieting roller coaster, conquer food cravings, overcome exercise resistance, and beat the tendency to retreat and regain. In this three hour workshop you will develop a personalized (one size does NOT fit all), step-by-step action plan to give-up yo-yo dieting, lose weight and feel good about your body. What Participants Will Achieve:
    • An understanding of your unique eating and exercise patterns
    • Acceptance and guilt-free understanding of past dieting failures
    • A practical, individualized action plan for permanent weight control

  • Help Yourself to a Healthy Body Image

    Overview: Hating the way you look is NOT a useful weight control strategy. Improving your body image, even if you have many pounds to lose, will lift your mood. With a better body image it will be easier to make the changes necessary for permanent weight loss. This presentation will help you overcome your bad feelings and show you how to develop a healthy respect for your body. What Participants Will Achieve:
    • A new appreciation for your body and what it can do
    • Understanding of both the social and individual causes for body dissatisfaction
    • Methods for overcoming the negative thoughts and feelings about your body

  • Overcoming Exercise Avoidance

    Overview: Do you hate to exercise? Do you feel guilty because you know you should exercise but you think you don’t have the time, it’s too boring, or you’re just too lazy? Learn why you’ve lost the natural joy of movement and how to regain it. You’ll explore the experiences that turned you off to being active, and come away with step-by-step instructions for overcoming the barriers that keep you from enjoying a more active lifestyle. What Participants Will Achieve:
    • Identify the true source of their discomfort with their bodies and activity
    • Discover the types of physical activities they enjoyed as children
    • Develop an individualized plan to gradually, and comfortably increase physical activity
