Leaders from Monte Nido’s Eating Disorder Center of California will facilitate “Sleeping Souls: Awakening your Authentic Self” in which we will explore the nature of soul and the value of soul work in eating disorder treatment. Participants will examine the moralization of food that is present in our culture and how a client’s value judgment of food can disrupt a healthy connection between mind, body and soul. The work of the clinician becomes strengthening the healthy soul self within the client to challenge limiting beliefs that keep clients disconnected from the potential of a recovered life. Attendees will participate in group experiences that are utilized with clients at Monte Nido’s Eating Disorder Center of California and training will be provided on how professionals can utilize these tools in a private practice setting.
Attendees will learn to identify clinical markers for ARFID and be able to distinguish it from typical Anorexia Nervosa. They will learn to describe the medical implications of prolonged disruption of nutrition on the adolescent physical development. Lastly, they will learn the complex co-morbidities that arise with eating disorders and often go undiagnosed and mimic symptomology of eating disorders (such as ARFID, misophonia, OCD).
“Sleeping Souls: Awakening your Authentic Self” will be held on Friday, August 18th from 9:30-12pm. The event will be held at The Den LA BREA. Parking is available for $3.75 next door in the lot just north of The Den. Light breakfast and check-in begins at 9:30am and the presentation will be held from 10am -12pm. Two CE credits will be provided to the following: PhD, PsyD, LMFT, LCSW, LPCC and RD. This is an experiential workshop with seating limited to 12 guests.
