Event description

Description

This workshop with Professor Julia Buckroyd offers a general introduction to working with clients in this area. It aims to offer a conceptual framework for understanding the misuse of food, using attachment theory, and then to offer a wide range of strategies for working with clients.

Central areas for consideration include, emotional language, attachment history, self esteem, body esteem and identity, relationships and self soothing. The workshop is active and interactive; participants should be willing to reflect on their own eating behaviour and attachment history as well as that of their clients.

Prof Julia Buckroyd

Julia Buckroyd is Emeritus Professor of Counselling at the University of Hertfordshire and a therapist in private practice, specialising in working with people with all sorts of problems with food, weight, shape and size. She is particularly interested in the meaning and function of the manipulation of food and looks for triggers to episodes of food misuse. She believes that clients are unlikely to abandon their eating habits unless they learn alternative means of life management and so focuses on helping clients develop better means of emotional regulation. She has written widely in this area. Her most recent book is Understanding your Eating McGraw Hill, 2011.


Refreshments are provided throughout the day, however lunch is not included. As this is a central venue, there are many shops and cafes locally, there is also a kitchen available for those who may wish to bring their own food.
