Eating, Attachment, and Somatic Education Training – June 24th-25th, 2016

Eating disorders are complex, multi-layered, and pernicious. And yet even the best evidenced-based interventions currently available have limited long-term outcomes. Paradoxically, the body, the very stage where the war is waged is often missing in most eating disorder treatment approaches. In recent years there has been burgeoning evidence in the role of the body in emotional regulation. This two-day training integrates theory with experiential and didactic opportunities for professionals to expand skills and discover the untapped resource of the body in healing from disordered eating. Presenter, Paula Scatoloni, LCSW, CEDS, SEP is a somatic-based psychotherapist and certified IAEDP supervisor. The former Eating Disorder Coordinator at Duke University, Paula has been providing lectures on the etiology and treatment of disordered eating for almost two decades. Continue reading

Al Pesso Retirement Letter

I have come to realize it is impossible to continue my training schedule under these health conditions and that for the foreseeable future my time would best be spent writing the books and articles that have been on a back burner for years.
