The binge cycle meets EMDR: Bridging the gap
The "binge cycle" refers to the repetitive oscillation between binging and restrictive eating typical of binge eating disorder. Workshop participants will be enabled to identify and relate under-explored phases of the cycle. They will learn how to use a simple information-gathering tool to quickly enter the client's symptomatic work, make apparent the "inner logic" driving cyclic behaviors and, based on this, engage the client in the therapeutic work ahead. I will then demonstrate how this information can be used to devise an EMDR-based treatment plan and integrate it with various existing models for EMDR with E.D. clients.
