Learn how to teach this unique 8-week therapeutic program based on the brain-based knowledge of eating disorders and the world of neuroscience.

You will learn why the evidenced-based skills of interoceptive awareness, embodiment and self-compassion are critical to long-term recovery and how to properly deliver these skills in safe and effective way. This somatic-based training will prepare you to deliver this program in a group format or by coaching your client through it individually.

Through building somatic and brain-based skills of interoceptive awareness, mindfulness, and self-compassion, your clients will learn emotional regulation from the inside out. Their body will become a primary source of information and emotional regulation. They will develop the skills necessary to reduce fear and anxiety and learn how to work with and prevent getting stuck in self-harming and self-critical cycles.

This training is open to all clinicians, dieticians, and certified eating disorder coaches to be offered out individually, into your community, or within your treatment program as this program can be integrated alongside any other theoretical framework.

This program was developed through my doctoral research on self-compassion, my book Befriending Your Body, a pilot study on the program, and over 27 years of clinical knowledge working with those struggling with disordered eating and body image issues.

Your clients will develop a new respectful and trusting relationship with their body, food and self for integrated and lasting healing and freedom!
