Integrating treatment of eating disorders with EMDR
This workshop will draw on clinical experience and expertise with eating disorders and delineate creative ways to utilize EMDR with this population. A stage oriented approach will be presented, addressing attachment styles, affect management skills, ego strength development, problem behavior/symptom management, trauma resolution, body image clarification and "performance" enhancement. Eating disordered clients often have traumatic histories. We will incorporate the standard EMDR protocol into the overall treatment.
