Dr. Mark Schwartz Presents: Issues Related to Intimacy, Love, and Relationships with Eating Disorder Clients

January 23, 2013 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CST

Clients with eating disorders commonly present with features of what Mary Ainsworth would classify as Type A and Type C patterns of attachment. One of the goals of treatment is to help move clients towards a more secure attachment. An Earned Secure Attachment can be facilitated in psychotherapy with a cohesive coherent collaborative narrative. Many clients with eating disorders also present with features of a disorder of intimacy. Intimacy disorder is often related to a client's inner battle with trust, safety, power, control and closeness. These schemas must be explored in psychotherapy in order to help clients develop a secure attachment.  This webinar will include discussion of early attachment as a blueprint for adult relationships with eating disorder clients. Dr. Schwartz will present a contemporary perspective on “reenactment” and how individuals achievably recreate “unfinished business” in relationships. He will also discuss providing anticipatory guidance for eating disorder clients regarding healthy relationships and ways to develop passion, as this is a structural capacity many eating disorder clients have not discovered.


Katie Thompson, LPC Presents: Treatment of Binge Eating Disorder

February 20, 2013 12:00 PM- 1:00 PM CST

Traditional therapeutic models for treating Binge Eating Disorder are necessary but not sufficient. The most dynamic, effective and comprehensive treatment plans include the integration of Internal Family Systems (IFS), Exposure and Response Prevention and Experiential Therapies.  These approaches allow clinicians and treatment centers to access cognitive, affective and behavioral components of the disorder while simultaneously allowing the client to develop a deeper understanding of their disorder and a sense of self-efficacy necessary for long-term recovery. This presentation will teach participants how to utilize IFS, ERP and Experiential therapies to create the most effective treatment plans for Binge Eating Disorder.  Clinicians will learn the necessary theory with a primary focus on hands-on demonstrative interventions to take their practice beyond providing the traditional supports to clients struggling with Binge Eating Disorder and related Disorders.  Participants will understand how to create comprehensive and effective treatment plans that address the core components and create long-term recovery through relapse prevention and exposures techniques.
