Bodies in Interaction:
The Interpersonal Treatment of Eating Disorders
Date: Saturday, March 24th, 2012 10am to 12pm
Location: Eisner-Lubin Auditorium at the Kimmel Center, NYU
Presenter: Jean Petrucelli, Ph.D
Moderator: Sheldon Itzkowitz, Ph.D.
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 binge-eating patients will be illustrated with clinical case material.
