The unforgiven: EMDR, ego state therapy, attachment repair and forgiveness in the treatment of eating disorders

Description

This workshop will explore the presence of dissociation in clients with eating disorders, particularly anorexia nervosa. The approach employs an EMDR phase model, expanding the evaluation and preparation phases. Preparation presents a 4-step method of teaching emotional competence, attachment repair strategies, as well as the use of ego state therapy. Processing requires the ability to titrate released disturbance and re-stabilize after EMDR application to touchstone events. Self-forgiveness emerges as internal “parts” develop mutual compassion and support. Video clips, case studies and case reviews will reinforce learning.
