Educational Objectives

After attending this meeting, participants should be able to recognize the manifestations of the powerful and punitive superego encountered in dealing with patients suffering from eating disorders, and to formulate strategies to address the destructive influence of the superego on the patient as well as the analysis.



One of the most formidable tasks in treating patients with eating disorders is diminishing the influence of the patient’s archaic and punitive superego. Until this is done, any therapeutic gain will be thwarted or even counterproductive, as shown in the frequent negative therapeutic reactions encountered in these disorders. Detailed clinical material will be presented to illustrate how this dilemma must be approached early and regularly.
