New York State Society for Clinical Social Work Mid-Hudson Chapter with The Advanced Clinical Education Foundation of the NYSSCSW Presents:

TREATING THE EATING DISORDER SELF: WHEN TRUSTING FOOD IS SAFER THAN TRUSTING PEOPLE

Program Description

Through the lens of attachment theory, this course will explore the dynamics that can lead people to the creative “solution” of eating disorders. The emotional eater recruits food to remedy a host of problematic issues that have nothing to do with hunger or fullness: self-medication, frozen grief, trauma, inner emptiness and the search for identity.

Exploring this internal landscape will reveal how bulimia, binge eating disorder, chronic dieting, anorexia, and body dysmorphia become an outlet for emotional expression that therapy can help to decode. A variety of treatment strategies will be discussed to help therapists formulate an individualized and comprehensive treatment plan for each patient. Issues of transference and countertransference will also be examined so the therapist can provide a strong and creative bridge between the patient’s emotional eating and the road to recovery.
