Each person who sits across from us hoping for help with an eating disorder is much more than her set of symptoms. Her eating issues live within the context of her personality underpinnings, temperament, talents, struggles and unique life history. In this webinar we will help you to identify your eating patient within the larger context of her personality and give you suggestions of ways we have found to be helpful with the work. This “going below the surface” will teach you how to establish rapport with patients who present in these different ways, to see patterns along with symptoms, and to formulate realistic goals and expectations. Once you have an essential understanding of personality disorder it will help you to anticipate high risk periods throughout the lifecycle of your patient while keeping the therapy relationship strong so that your patient can continue to grow in the context of new challenges. Our format will include case materials, theory and practice.
