Working with binge eating
When people think of eating disorders, they tend to picture someone with anorexia or bulimia. Binge eating disorder is more common than both of these and yet sufferers often blame themselves, believing it to be merely a lack of willpower.
There is a lot of confusion about when binge eating/compulsive eating turns into an eating disorder. Many of us struggle with managing our food intake, but our levels of distress about this vary widely.
This workshop is for practitioners to come together to explore ways we can support and work with clients who are distressed about overeating. We will also explore our own relationship with food and consider how this impacts our work with clients. I have met many therapists who have a difficult relationship with food themselves, it seems to be common amongst people in helping roles.
During the weekend we will look at what we know about the biological influences of our appetite, the role of emotions and how to heal a disordered relationship with food. The workshop is capped at 11 participants to allow process and to create a workshop feel as opposed to an impersonal webinar.
