Event description
Every client has a relationship with food and their body. Learn how to support your client whether they have disordered eating or an ED.

About this Event

On Friday, Oct 1st, the program content was written specifically for the many professionals that come into contact with someone who may have an eating disorder. For anyone who feels nervous about how complicated treatment can be, who may need a refresher course, this workshop is for you. Many changes have been made in the DSM over the years for diagnostic criteria for eating disorders. Learn what they are, how to assess for an ED, and hear some of the latest treatment strategies.

 On Saturday, Oct 2nd, we start the day off with learning about embodiment as a resource in ED recovery. ED behaviors are often strategies for managing a dysregulated nervous system. Developing an understanding of our nervous system and building interoceptive awareness skills moves us to greater embodiment. Embodiment is a process of learning to inhabit ourselves from the inside out rather than reflecting on it from the outside. This process allows us to access the body as a resource in recovery.

From there discuss attuned eating in a weight stigmatized culture, where we will learn how to approach clients from a harm reduction approach and philosophy.  Educating the client in nutrition from a non-diet approach and philosophy is imperative to recovery. How do you incorporate a positive nutrition education that includes intuitive eating, mindfulness, and Health at Every Size Principles? As their therapist, it’s important you understand this part of the work.

Finally, we close it all out examining weight bias. You can expect education on cultural, systemic, and personal weight bias and how it can interfere with therapeutic work with our clients. We will discuss the research that supports the shift towards weight neutral care, what that looks like and provide participants tools to use in their practices.
