The case of mistaken identity: EMDR and ego state therapy in the treatment of eating disorders

Description

This workshop uses the EMDR eight-phase model to provide an overview for treatment of people with eating disorders. The preparation phase highlights a 4-step method of teaching emotional competence, and the use of ego state therapy to free the Self from an identity with the disordered part(s). Preparation and processing both require body awareness and acceptance, as well as the ability to titrate released disturbance and re-stabilize after EMDR application to touchstone events.
