This seminar provides acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) strategies and experiential, expressive methods to provide powerful treatment resources for the practitioner. The psychological complexity of eating disorder clients - diverse race, culture, sexual orientation, and age - who present with one or more co-occurring disorders and, all too often, a history of treatment failures, will be addressed. Attendees will learn to assess the appropriate level of care, prioritize treatment targets and address the temporal order of treatment. This presentation will also incorporate use of body/mind approaches and innovative methods for the clinician. Lecture, demonstration exercises and video clips will be utilized.
