Event description

Description

Eating disorders and specifically ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive of Food and Intake Disorder) immobilize a child and adolescent due to the high intensities of fear and distress. The common way clients cope is to seek relief by avoiding the things, persons, and places they think cause this distress. Eating disorders also immobilize due to loss of positive experiences and clients struggle to find the energy and motivation to try to regain back the things they have lost. We can use exposure therapies to help our clients face the things they fear and avoid. We can also use of behavioral activation to help them regain connection and positive feelings in their life. These therapies have similar processes and similar outcomes, however, sometimes it is hard to know which therapy to use to help our clients achieve what they are looking for.
