About the Training

Sufferers of eating disorders and trauma tend to engage in eating pathology to avoid the emotions associated with their trauma. By directly targeting experiential avoidance, clinicians can guide clients to recovery and sustainable change. This seminar will provide attendees with a transdiagnostic and Cognitive Processing Therapy approach to the treatment of eating disorders and trauma.

During this virtual 2 CE presentation, attendees will learn the benefits that result when their clients understand how the eating disorder has served as a protective response and embrace strength in tolerating their emotions. This presentation will provide a case example while addressing themes of safety, esteem, trust, control, and intimacy.
