When shame is ignored in treatment, one of the factors that drives eating disordered behaviors is neglected, thus inadvertently sabotaging the eating disordered individual’s attempts to become well. This presentation will educate participants regarding how the experience of shame impacts early childhood development. It will present a form of narrative therapy that assists a client/patient in the use of the life story to identify emotional, cognitive, spiritual, and relational wounds and related unmet needs that influence the development of a shame based identity.
 Participants will be enabled to accurately conceptualize the relationship between a shame identity and the development and maintenance of eating disorder behaviors and characteristics. This presentation will also provide an in-depth assessment of the belief system that is common to individuals who develop an eating disorder and how shame influences these beliefs very early in life. It will enable clinicians to accurately conceptualize and apply these factors into their treatment process, in order to more effectively assist clients in movement toward recovery. Clinicians will be provided with a thorough understanding of how powerful shame can become when ignored in treatment in terms of treatment failures and relapses.          Clinicians will be given tools to assist clients/patients in developing insight into how a shame identity has impacted his/her development and what the connections are between these factors and his/her use of eating disorder behaviors in order to navigate his/her life journey.
These tools include skill sets that the presenters have discovered within their own eating disorder patient practices encourage movement forward in treatment and in recovery, if they are used in conjunction with other generally accepted treatment modalities. Participants will not only learn how to teach their eating disorder clients/patients the following skills, but will also learn techniques that will enable application of those skills in a client/patient’s everyday life. The skill sets that will be presented include mindfulness (including body mindfulness skills), guided imagery, behavioral chain analysis and commitment to change.
