Untangling the Eating Disordered Self: Methods for Healing Enmeshed Families
Not only do eating disorders impact individuals, but they also cause significant distress and dysfunction within family systems. Even the most savvy clinicians can find it challenging to collaborate with the family system to treat an individual struggling with an eating disorder due to dysfunctional patterns of attachment, like enmeshment. Furthermore, individuals struggling with eating disorders will often have impaired views of reality, making it challenging for them to develop an identity outside of their disorder. This presentation will provide ways of analyzing challenging eating disorder enmeshment patterns in family systems, methods and interventions for confronting clients' impaired realities, as well as provide case studies where we untangle clients and their family systems from their eating disorders.
