Eating disorders present particular treatment challenges to clinicians in how they engage and welcome bodies – their patients’ and their own –into the therapeutic dialogue. Disordered eating, conceptualized as the psychic inability to care for one’s self, will be viewed in the context of culture, attachment, neurobiology, self-states, body-states, self-regulation and affect regulation issues. Analytically informed techniques with anorexic, bulimic and bingeeating patients will be illustrated with clinical case material. **Free event and open to the publc.**
