CPD Event title: Working with Eating Disorders – Online Diploma Certificate
Brief Description Of Event: Eating disorders predominantly affect women during teenage years, however, boys, and adults of both sexes can also be affected. Eating disorders are the outward expression of deeper psychological and emotional problems. Although food seems the focus of these complaints, it is the inner problems which need dealing with in order to resolve them. Eating disorders are rarely simple issues about food. One of the most common failures of conventional treatments is that ALL the focus is on food. In hospital in-patient treatment for anorexia, for example, a carrot-and-stick approach is used to get the patient’s weight up. Sadly, however successful this may be while they are actually in hospital, the patient usually reverts to the original behaviour as soon as they are out. This is where approaches like Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy can be so much more effective. This CPD Masterclass covers various eating disorders and other food-focused problems and the factors that typically underlie them and will extend your therapeutic repertoire in an area that is increasingly prevalent in society.
