Treating Body Image Distortion: A Sensorimotor Approach presented by Holly Finlay, MA, LPCC, CEDS, CSP
People with eating disorders often articulate their emotions solely in terms of bodily perceptions including, “fat, bloated and weighed down.” Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) invites the body into treatment. Exploring these physical sensations provides another window into deeper unresolved issues while helping clients learn to decipher the true meaning of the language of their bodies. This workshop provides SP basics and experiential exercises for immediate use with clients.
