Individuals with eating disorders tend to demonstrate a lack of connection with their “true self.”
Instead of experiencing the ease of authenticity, they reveal extreme discomfort, attempting to avoid living in their bodies rather than coping with the overwhelming problems that remain buried deep inside of themselves. As clinicians, we often look to external techniques to determine meaningful interventions. However, our own experience of embodiment, ability to access unconscious material and way of being in our own body play a critical role in facilitating healing experience. This course will combine an understanding of the dynamics underlying eating disorders with the practice of DMT. Methods to help individuals with eating disorders explore their relationship with their bodies, risk connecting to others and understand the parallel between the therapeutic experience and the way in which they move through life will be addressed. Included also are formats for addressing body image and a tracking system for decoding experiences.
