Emotional eating. Stress eating. Comfort eating. When your clients struggle with eating, your first move as a therapist may be to develop plans for specific behavioral changes they can implement… a list of things they can do instead of reaching for the fork or limiting food intake. But these efforts won’t work over the long term. Emotional eating – and the eating disorders it can become – are rooted in nervous system dysregulation and disembodiment that behavior change strategies alone will fail to shift. The body needs to be included for treatment to be effective. Without it, your clients’ disembodiment will continue, keeping them stuck in the cycle of disordered eating and losing hope in your work with them. Join Ann Saffi Biasetti, PhD, LCSWR, CEDS, for this in-depth training where you’ll discover how to integrate the body in treatment in a way that fosters real change in your clients’ relationships with food and their bodies! Packed with practical interventions based in somatic psychotherapy, self-compassion, and mindfulness practice, this comprehensive seminar will provide you with strategies to:

  • Teach clients what happens inside their bodies that drives disordered eating
  • Shift from shame to empowerment from the very beginning of treatment
  • Calm the nervous system and regulate emotions without turning to food
  • Help clients re-establish body cues for hunger and fullness
  • Reconnect clients with their bodies to promote self-compassion and self-care
  • Replace the harsh inner critic with self-compassion and curiosity

Register today to help clients manage what is happening on the inside to build resilience, improve emotion regulation, and

  • Conduct psychoeducation about the nervous system and oppression-related cultural factors impacting eating and body image.
  • Employ the evidence-based practice of body literacy to improve clients’ interoceptive awareness.
  • Apply somatic and nervous system tracking in session to improve emotion regulation.
  • Utilize co-regulation interventions to improve treatment outcomes.
  • Investigate the three components of self-compassion and utilize evidence-based self-compassion skills to reduce shame.
  • Differentiate between emotional eating and a clinical eating disorder to determine appropriate level of care.
