Eating disorders are rarely about food. They're often about underlying trauma.

Trauma from sexual abuse, childhood neglect, and other horrific experiences lead your clients to ruminate on thoughts like, "I hate my body, I'll never look good enough, I won't be happy until I'm thinner."

While behavior-focused disordered eating interventions can help, you need to dig further and expand your clinical toolbox.

Because the reality is untreated trauma and eating disorders are lethal. But, they don't have to be.

In this groundbreaking course, you'll gain a dual skill set to treat the intersection of eating disorders and trauma from every angle. Our hand-selected panel of seven premier experts brings over 100 years of clinical experience and new research to help you:

  • Craft individualized interventions that target clients' mind-body complexes
  • Integrate innovative treatments like Internal Family Systems, EMDR, CBT, ACT & more
  • Treat dissociation that underlies common eating disorder symptoms
  • Master the nuances of working with men and other populations
  • Manage self-harm, suicidality, and other crises

By the end of this training, you'll be able to deliver the trauma-sensitive disordered eating therapy that only this specialized training can provide.

Plus, get unlimited access to three bonus videos and the education you need to become a Certified Trauma Treatment Professional. Giving you the opportunity to stand out from the crowd and let clients and colleagues know you've invested the time and effort needed to provide treatment at the highest level!
