In this one day training event Julia Buckroyd will explore our complex relationship with food, and the ways in which we can work effectively with clients who present to us with disordered eating.
We will begin by looking at how diagnoses for eating disorders are made and why such diagnoses can be problematic. We will look at ideas such as ‘emotional eating’ and discover how eating behaviour can be addressed therapeutically. The role of self-esteem, emotional intelligence, and strategies to regulate feelings will be explored as practical and thoughtful ways to help clients to manage their lives without turning to food. The role of attachment and relationships will also be considered.
