Regardless of where your clients fall on the disordered eating spectrum, they all share the same painful cyclical experience of unrelenting self-criticism, negative body image, unhealthy behavior. And shame. And while great strides have been made in ED treatment, the recovery rate is still only 50%. Join Dr. Ann Saffi, Somatic Psychotherapist and ED specialist, for this in-depth training where you’ll discover how to help clients re-connect with their long-neglected bodies, let go of the “not ____ enough” narrative, and learn to embrace, befriend, and listen to the internal wisdom of their bodies.
