Description

Trauma creates fertile ground for issues with food.

When does emotional eating become disordered eating? And when does disordered eating become an eating disorder?

Most clinicians are not aware of the overlap between trauma, emotional eating, and eating disorders, missing key interventions that relieve clients’ suffering.

Your clients may be struggling at mealtimes – and if you aren’t asking about their relationship with food, you may unintentionally be reinforcing their shame.

Really – given the high rates of co-occurrence – if you’re doing trauma work, you likely already have clients with disordered eating, including Binge Eating Disorder (BED), the most common and most underdiagnosed eating disorder.

Not an eating disorders specialist? You can still treat BED! Amy Pershing, LMSW, ACSW, expert BED psychotherapist, will share with you a comprehensive, evidence-based toolkit of successful interventions that will:

  • Transform your client’s relationship with food, weight, and body image
  • Approach trauma and binge eating disorder from an IFS-informed framework, somatic interventions, and more
  • Integrate the crucial strategies of attuned eating and movement
  • Root your practice in the tenets of weight-neutral recovery

Don’t let trauma continue to wreak havoc on your clients’ experience of eating. Purchase now to help your traumatized clients forge a peaceful relationship with food.
