Title: Eating Attachment and Somatic Education Training (EASE)

Fee: group and student fees available

Eating disorders are complex, multi-layered, and pernicious. And yet even the best evidenced-based interventions currently available have limited long-term outcomes. Paradoxically, the body, the very stage where the war is waged is often missing in most eating disorder treatment approaches. In recent years there has been burgeoning evidence in the role of the body in emotional regulation. Drawing from pioneers such as Peter Levine, Pat Ogden, Allan Schore, Bessel Van Der Kolk, and Dan Seigel, and Stephen Porges, the Eating, Attachment and Somatic Education Training (EASE) is designed to bridge the gap between traditional eating disorder therapy and cutting-edge approaches that highlight the crucial role of attachment, the body, and the neurobiological processes that govern affect regulation. This two-day training integrates theory with experiential and didactic opportunities for professionals to expand skills and discover the untapped resource of the body in healing from disordered eating.
