Getting to the Heart of Eating Disorders: Using Mindfulness to Promote Emotional Awareness

May 12, 2017
8:00 am
Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown

Mindfulness is an oft-used term in today’s society. We are encouraged to feel, eat, play, and work, mindfully – but what does that really mean? This daylong workshop addresses that question: how to use mindfulness in a way that is effective both in clinical settings as well as in relationships? Initially, this seminar will focus on defining and discussing the benefits/limitations of mindfulness and help attendees learn to implement mindfulness into daily life and work. This will be followed by in-depth training on how the mindful experience of emotion can be a foundational tool in eating disorder recovery. Using real life examples from The Renfrew Center Unified Treatment Model for Eating Disorders™, participants will learn how to empower themselves and clients to become mindfully aware of emotional experiences, thus laying the groundwork for the difficult, yet ultimately rewarding, journey towards full recovery.
