This seminar will explore the impact of eating disorders in the Jewish community and provide essential tools and creative strategies for health and mental health professionals to utilize in their practice. While we will discuss the many aspects of Judaism that can readily be implemented for healing with eating disorders patients, we will also address those rituals and practices that may trigger the onset or maintenance of an on-going eating disorder. The importance of working with emotional tolerance skills will be examined and clinicians will have the opportunity to learn how Jewish ethics can be implemented as part of an effective value-based approach so critical to recovery.
Participants will learn how to integrate a groundbreaking transdiagnostic approach into their work with Jewish women and will include role plays and interactive participation while highlighting current, evidence-based treatments.
This seminar is open to all practitioners; those who treat Jewish clients and those just wanting to learn more.
