The Treatment of Trauma and Eating Disorders
Presented by Dr. Christine Schneider, Ph.D, LCSW
Eating disorder behaviors can begin as a survival strategy in adaptation to traumatic situations. Treatment of trauma and eating disorders requires an understanding of the context under which the eating disorder behaviors began. It also requires an understanding of how these behaviors came to be seen as a survival strategy in a traumatic situation. Acceptance of the ways that these behaviors were seen as adaptation to trauma can allow the client to work toward the healing of the trauma, remission of symptoms, neutralization of food shame and the alternative use of more adaptive coping strategies.
