Description

Body shaming comments. Lengthy dieting history. Shame associated with food choices. Black and white rules around eating. Talking frequently about weight loss/gain – or evading the issues completely. Does your client have disordered eating or binge eating disorder?

Three times more common than all other eating disorders combined, Binge Eating Disorder is pervasive across gender, race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status throughout the United States. And given that 80% of clients with BED also have a history of trauma, you need to know how to assess and treat this disorder regardless of your clinical specialty.

If you’re doing trauma work, you may already have clients with BED. Are you prepared?

Watch Amy Pershing, LMSW, ACSW, author, psychotherapist and expert on BED, as she introduces a comprehensive, evidence-based toolkit of successful interventions that:

  • Transform your client’s relationship with food, weight, and body image
  • Incorporate the critical connection between early trauma and binge eating disorders
  • Help process trauma narratives and somatic activations that fuel binge eating
  • Integrate the crucial strategies of “Attuned Eating and Movement”
  • Connect your client with weight-neutral nutritionists and medical providers

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to help your clients make peace with food and their bodies! Sign up today!
