This seminar integrates acceptance and commitment therapy with experiential, expressive methods to provide powerful treatment resources for the practitioner. We will examine the psychological complexity of eating disorder clients – clients of diverse race, culture, sexual orientation and age – who present with one or more co-occurring disorders and, all too often, a history of treatment failures. Attendees will learn how to assess the appropriate level of care, address the temporal order of treatment and decide which therapeutic modalities will best serve their clients.
This presentation will also incorporate use of body/mind approaches and innovative methods for the clinician to integrate into traditional clinical practice. Lecture, demonstration exercises, small group discussion and video clips of treatment sessions will be utilized.
A take-home resource packet will be provided
