Working therapeutically with disordered eating and eating disorders
Why attend this course?
This workshop offers a general introduction to working with clients in the area of disordered eating. It aims to offer a conceptual framework for understanding the misuse of food, using attachment theory, and then to offer a wide range of strategies for working with clients.
What will it cover?
Central areas for consideration during the day will include, emotional language, attachment history, self-esteem, body-esteem and identity, relationships and self-soothing. The workshop is designed to be active and interactive; participants should be willing to reflect on their own eating behaviour and attachment history as well as that of their clients.
