Note: For this course there is a small additional fee to obtain the webinar. Please see the “Get Course Materials” link in the right sidebar for details.
All eating disordered clients in recovery must learn or relearn how to tolerate emotions. Emotions tied to allowing intimacy and sexuality are often the most complex since they activate protective numbing parts related to engulfment and abandonment. Alienation from the body interferes with the sensory experiences as well as fear related to pleasure and letting go. This lecture will categorize the most common patterns of ED clients as well as interventions that are useful from a cognitive and mindfulness perspective. This workshop will utilize videotaped segments illustrating deeper work related to changing cognitive schemas tied to early trauma and neglect.
All eating disordered clients in recovery must learn or relearn how to tolerate emotions. Emotions tied to allowing intimacy and sexuality are often the most complex since they activate protective numbing parts related to engulfment and abandonment. Clients often have a combination of hyper and hypo sexuality tied to their over control and out of control cycles paralleling the eating disorder. Similarly they have relationship with cycles of over dependency followed by distances related to disorganization attachment. This often requires intra-psychic as well as inter-psychic interventions related to tolerating intimacy. Alienation from the body interferes with the sensory experiences as well as fear related to pleasure and letting go.
This lecture will categorize the most common patterns of ED clients as well as interventions that are useful from a cognitive and mindfulness (Buddhist) perspective. This workshop will utilize videotaped segments to illustrate deeper work related to changing cognitive schemas tied to early trauma and neglect.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, Reclaiming the Body: IAEDP Symposium 2009 – Sensuality, Sexuality, and Intimacy Following Childhood Attachment Trauma created by Mark Schwartz, Sc.D.
