Intuitive Eating and The Child Within: The Psychology Behind Intuitive Eating

August 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

This presentation will explore the importance of understanding that each client holds a spectrum of emotions that are identical to those from childhood.  In fact, all human beings carry these emotions throughout their lives.  An understanding of the emotions of the child within and the psychology behind Intuitive Eating will help participants utilize the principles of Intuitive Eating in treating patients with eating disorders in a deeper and more effective manner.


Learning Objectives:

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the meaning of “the child within/inner child”
  2. Utilize the emotions that emerge from this inner child in order to create more effective counseling in the treatment of their clients healing from disordered eating/eating disorders
  3. Internalize a deeper understanding of the psychology behind Intuitive Eating
