Mothers, Daughters and Food: Understanding Disordered Eating

This workshop will explore the relationship between mothers, daughters and food and how the dynamics of disordered eating originate. An overview of the role of food and eating at each developmental stage, beginning in infancy, will be discussed. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of different patterns present between mothers and daughters and how those patterns can be addressed clinically. We will explore the role of the therapist and specific intervention strategies that can be used in clinical treatment. The workshop will utilize lecture, clinical vignettes, small group discussion, interactive exercises, and role playing to facilitate the learning experience.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
