Workshop Description:

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us” ~ David Richo

Living in diet culture, we are constantly bombarded with messages that connect our outer appearance with our internal worth.Body image and self-love can be a direct casualty of living from a belief that our worth as people and spiritual beings is defined externally by the container of our souls. New models of body positivity and self-compassion are seeping into our collective conscience and providing respite for the disconnection created by diet culture. Come and learn about traditional methods of healing body image through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) alongside the newer treatment approaches such as Body Positivity, Health at Every Size (HAES), and utilizing self-compassion in healing body image.

As with body image, we know that treating eating disorders is also a complex and multifaceted process. Ethically, we must utilize evidence-based treatments to deliver the most efficacious treatment to people with such serious and life-threatening disorders. This five-hour workshop will focus on the diagnostic criteria for eating disorders as defined by the DSM-5-TR and their treatment. We will also address the devastating result of western culture’s obsession with “thinness eating disorders” and how they relate to body image issues. Overall, we will learn how to help people with eating disorders and body image struggles to become re-embodied and whole.
