Food Angst In The Consulting Room

media-onlinecourse-tn 3 CE Hours


In America, almost everybody has peculiar eating habits, and almost everybody exhibits some food excesses and fetishes. Learn practical techniques you can use to help your clients avoid these harmful eating habits.

We suffer from a food angst, a sometimes fatal, sometimes merely fatuous, condition that often turns food into a mortal enemy. Reading Course R124 explores why clients develop eating disorders and what to do about it.

Here's What Reading Course R124, Food Angst in the Consulting Room, Covers:

  • How the cultural conflict between self-indulgence and the celebration of being lean affects your clients.
  • 4 strategies for using brief therapy with eating disordered clients.
  • How to avoid stalemates and power struggles with eating disordered clients.
  • The mental harm that the multi-billion diet industry and the "problem" of being fat have on clients.
  • An innovative narrative approach with anorexic clients, as used by the Anti-Anorexia League.
