HOW TO LISTEN SO PATIENTS TALK

Subject: Eating and embodiment issues in general treatment

How do we therapists listen for and address food, feeding and body troubles in an ongoing treatment not specifically dedicated to eating problems?

This workshop will help the general therapist find a more secure and informed therapeutic voice amidst the culturally induced and sanctioned “every day speak" of food and feeding distress and embodiment troubles.

The Women’s Therapy Centre Institute’s theoretical and clinical treatment model for eating and body problems allows us to enter into our patients’ inner life and psychodynamic struggles and decode the instantaneous conversion of feeling language into food and body (hate, control, wish for transformation) language that so perniciously impacts psychic life in our time.

Developing a stance that questions this normalized hijacking of experience opens the opportunity for the therapist and client to speak about what really is troubling about ones life and to be liberated from restrictive and oppressive ideas about the right way to be and the right body. Flowing from this therapeutic goal is the potential for greater freedom and satisfaction in general.

Case material encouraged.
