About this event

We are all engaged with our relationship with food in some way or another.  For some, this is a complex dynamic, for others, it seems straightforward.  Within clinical work the theory and focus is often on eating disorders, but our relationship with food is far wider than that.

  1. Are you working with clients who are struggling with their relationship with food?
  2. Are you interested in understanding more about the role of attachment in childhood and adult life through the medium and metaphor of feeding?
  3. What is ‘normal’ eating and how do we distinguish this from ‘disordered’ eating?
  4. How is the way and what we eat influenced by social, historical, transgenerational and gender issues?

Through attending this workshop you will gain :

  • A better understanding of secure and insecure attachment as expressed through food
  • A deeper awareness of the impact of social, historical, transgenerational and gender issues on how and what we eat
  • Ways of thinking about our clients, their attachment histories and relationships with themselves as expressed through feeding themselves and others
  • Tools in the form of questions to bring into clinical work, both with eating disordered clients and where eating is not considered problematic
  • Greater awareness of our own relationships – secure, insecure or disorganised – with food
