Therapy for Eating Disorders...
Clients learn to effectively regulate their emotions and better tolerate distress.
They learn to assert themselves in effective, functional ways.
They become more mindful of their physical, emotional and cognitive process.
Often, deficiencies in one or more of these areas exacerbate the impulse to engage in pathological eating.
