Tending the Feminine Psyche

Anita Johnston, Phd; Francie White, MSRD; Carolyn Costin, MFT; Elissa Shapiro, LCSW

October 16, 2011 - October 21, 2011

Forget hotel conference crowds, hard chairs and power points, and engage in life-changing, in-depth, and intellectually fascinating teachings facilitated by four of the top eating disorder experts in the country… all while in your flip flops!

36 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for masters-level therapists & dietitians.

A wide range of essential topics will be covered for you to take back to your own private practice, groups, or workshops. Demonstrations, case reviews, and actual processes offer you personal-deepening and innovative ideas for your work with patients.
 
Topics such as 'Use of metaphor & mythology', in understanding how the unconscious communicates through symptoms – a depth perspective of negative body image & a fresh look at what heals it…embodiment.
 
Learn and participate in a fresh approach to treating negative body image through use of the body and its relationship to the earth.
 
Two structured sections focus on increasing your ability to get straight to the issue/s that underlie most eating disorders:

  • how we attach to and relate to others, including sexuality and attachment
  • how our patients get their needs met in the world.

 
Enjoy profound teachings about the new mind-brain science that opens new paradigms in understanding the power of human consciousness in co-creating transformative leaps in individual and planetary evolution.

Learn about the ancient Feminine Principle, and how to bring to consciousness the underlying expression this Feminine Principle uses in rebellion to current cultural views. Learn the Karpman Triangle Model for eating disorders and prevent your own burn-out. Participate in ritual, art, movement, meditation and more for an unforgettable mind-body-soul experience.
