EMDR therapy with eating disorders
This workshop will address the spectrum of eating disordered behaviors from a trauma perspective with EMDR therapy. Individuals are rarely born with distorted eating patterns. An increasing number of studies make the connection between adverse life experiences and the development of inappropriate relationships with food and exercise as coping mechanisms. Inappropriate relationships with food and exercise develop along a full continuum from disordered eating to a full-blown eating disordered behavior. The trainer will present from her 20+ years of experience utilizing the 8-phases and 3-pronged protocol of EMDR therapy with individuals suffering from eating disorders and disordered eating.
