Working with Compulsive Overeating

Wednesday 29th September 2021 - 9.45am-2.45pm

In this workshop Nerissa Shaw, with assistance from Sarah Stevens, will be exploring ways to help you understand, engage and work with clients who struggle with overeating.  Eating Disorder models do not always account for what might be termed ‘emotional overeating’ or 'compulsive overeating’, which can be different to Binge Eating Disorder. Therapy for eating disorders and disordered eating needs specialist knowledge and this workshop is an introduction to this complex area.  It is suitable for counsellors and therapists who want to learn more and it may also be helpful for anyone working in a role which involves interacting with those who may struggle with overeating in various forms, or their carers, such as non-specialist nurses, support workers, mental health professionals, teachers or other non-specialist healthcare professionals.

“I can’t emphasise enough what a massive part SWEDA have played in my journey to finding myself again. They are an incredible charity and are brilliant at their job. Over the past two years I have really started to understand myself and I have addressed issues that I had hid away in the past and with my counsellor’s amazing listening, non-judgmental and supportive skills I have been able to take back control of myself and rationally look at my emotions in day to day life."
