3. Eating Trauma & Body Image Issues 2 Day Training sponsored by Auckland Sexual Abuse Help, Saturday & Sunday, 7 and 8 April 2017 from 10 AM - 5 PM (to be confirmed)
Self-feeding, in accordance with physical hunger and fullness, is one of the most fundamental resources to developing an embodied sense of self. That is why, far from reflecting superficial vanity concerns, eating and body image problems often go hand in hand with childhood experiences of denial, neglect, abuse and trauma, especially for those with intractable eating symptoms. This workshop will present a model that heals the mind/body splits so inherent in these problems and explains a causal relationship among psychosomatic dissociation, eating problems and body shame. You will learn guidelines for assessment and intervention.
Working with these problems can open a window into the deepest self…if we know how to listen.The workshop will combine presentation and experiential activities, incorporating:
Anti-deprivation intuitive eating (based on Susie Orbach’s approach from Fat is a Feminist Issue)
Ego State Work with Guided Imagery
Media Literacy and Critical Thinking
Eating Disorders and Obesity
