The “comfort eating” during the collective trauma of the pandemic has brought new attention to how we use food to regulate our mood at times of stress. Whether we have overindulged or restricted, become quietly sedentary or compulsively active, we can return to balance with body, mind and spirit. In this workshop, Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, and Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, take a look at struggles with eating and body image and show how psychodrama, sociometry and other action methods support stability and healing and renewal. Clinicians, wellness coaches and other healers will find practical treatment guidelines and clinically tested psychodramatic action structures for addressing eating disorders and body image distortion.

Taking a fresh look at eating disorders and body image with tools to use and 3 CE and psychodrama hours

About this event

The “comfort eating” during the collective trauma of the pandemic has brought attention to the way we use food to regulate our mood at times of stress. Whether we have overindulged or restricted our food, become quietly sedentary or compulsively active, we can return to balance with body, mind and spirit.

In this three-hour online workshop, Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, and Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, take a fresh look at struggles with disordered eating and body image and show how psychodrama, sociometry and other action methods continue to support stability and healing and renewal. This workshop provides clinicians, wellness coaches and other health professionals with practical treatment guidelines and clinically tested psychodramatic action structures for addressing eating disorders and body image distortion.

Psychodrama and related experiential methods safely and effectively circumvent common emotional defenses with spontaneity and creativity. We discuss the neurobiology of the brain and nervous system and ways action methods rewire the brain. Participants will leave the workshop with a variety of experiential methods they can immediately apply in their practice settings.

In this workshop, you will learn:

• The importance of the gut-brain connection that contributes to disordered eating.

• How to assess individuals and groups with action sociometry on a variety of themes and topics.

• How to build group cohesion and reduce shame and isolation.

• The use of the timeline to understand the progression of disordered eating, disordered activity and body image distortion.

• The Three Faces of Eating Disorders as applied to collective and personal trauma.

• The importance of self-compassion in addressing disordered eating and body image issues.
