Studies over the past 20 years have highlighted the importance of integrating self-compassion into the treatment of eating disorders. By developing and demonstrating self-compassion, individuals are able to decrease levels of shame and perfectionism that often interfere with recovery-giving activities. Through lecture and discussion, this presentation aims to introduce Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and explain why this treatment modality is effective in treating clients with eating disorders. It is important that the entirety of the clinical team is familiar with the concepts and language of CFT. This presentation will equip all treatment team members in gaining a greater understanding of the fears, blocks, and resistances that often surface as obstacles to compassion. Additionally, the presenter will explore CFT interventions that are specifically designed to address nutrition, eating disorder behaviors, body image, and movement.
