Course Description:

As you perform your typical intake with a new client, you review their eating habits. There are indications of abnormal eating behaviors like yo-yo dieting and restrictive eating. The client guiltily says things like “I know I should eat healthier.”

Your guard is up, but you quickly move along when their problems don’t take the form of a full-blown eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia.

Disordered eating behaviors are frequently hiding something deeper – serving as a coping mechanism for the unresolved trauma that lies beneath. Without addressing the trauma behind the disordered eating your client will fail to find the relief they seek.

Attend this training and learn how to assess and treat disordered eating from a trauma-informed, body positive lens, for improved outcomes!

You’ll get the skills and essential treatment techniques you need for every stage of therapy, including:
  • Tools to diagnose and treat non-DSM-5® disordered eating
  • Interventions for reducing trauma symptomology related to disordered eating behaviors
  • Evidence-based strategies to reframe clients’ damaging relationship with food

Sign up today and experience the satisfaction of helping your clients to resolve their traumas and release the unhealthy disordered eating behaviors with this powerful non-diet paradigm!
Objectives:

  • Express a thorough understanding of childhood trauma, attachment, dissociation, and the researched, causal link to disordered eating.
  • Utilize evidence-based, assessment tools and interventions for disordered eating, trauma, and dissociation, as well as spouses/partners and families/caregivers.
  • Examine the history of eating disorder treatment, disordered eating in the United States, and the socio-political/cultural factors involved in disordered eating.
  • Identify how to diagnose and treat non-DSM-5® disordered eating.
  • Evaluate personal behaviors or counter-transference that could be impeding treatment efficacy.
  • Apply case studies and conceptualization for incorporating body-positive terminology, awareness and intervention.
