Working with Eating Disorders (ED) can be disconcerting and dizzying for both persons involved in their treatment.

Together we will explore various ED, from Orthorexia to Compulsive Eating, their psychological origin and function, and their unfolding in the therapeutic dynamic, using a psychoanalytical framework.

Case examples will be discussed, together with some aspects in working as part of a multidisciplinary team and residential treatment.

The workshops sets itself to be experiential rather than frontal, the participants will be invited to have an active role.

There is no charge for diploma students*. Qualified counsellors are very welcome but must pay the fee below.

Psychoanalysis seen through the Bion’s eyes is a radical departure from all conceptualisations which preceded him. We have not the slightest hesitation in saying that he is the deepest thinker within psychoanalysis – and this statement does not exclude Freud. (Symington & Symington, 1996,p. xii)

This series of seminars/discussions will focus on some of the main concepts to be found in Bion’s writings. Bion brought a piercing light into classical analytic theory and technique. He believed that the therapist is in a never ending ‘process of becoming’ authentic. The aim of the seminars is for the therapist to find a personal recognition of the thinking of Bion and apply this to their clinical work. The main focus will be on Bion’s understanding of thinking (Grid) and how with the controversial notion of ‘O’ creates within the therapist an authentic drive towards ‘Truth’ (Grotstein).
