Summary: Join Dr. Kate Truitt in this Advanced Topics Havening Techniques Workshop to dive deeper into the opportunities for welcoming the Havening Techniques into eating disorder treatment. In this workshop we will unpack the unique neurobiology of binge eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia nervosa and identify core opportunities for effective treatment intervention.

Join us to learn 3 new Advanced Havening protocols:

  • The Cravings Protocol
    • Extremely powerful in all working with all types of cravings - not just food!
  • The Food Restriction and Avoidance Protocol
  • The Outcome Havening Inner Ally Protocol 
    • A powerful new tool for integrating parts work into your healing practice!

Did you know that research into the psychophysiology of eating disorders and disordered eating highlights the amygdala as playing an important role in the development of the behaviors as well as its maintenance? In fact, the role of the amygdala varies amongst the different eating disorders subtypes. The Havening Techniques welcome a powerful new opportunity for dismantling the painful beliefs of self, the destructive relationships with food, and the terror that arises in the face of healthy change.

Every day we walk through our world assaulted by the mass media event that is our reality. When under siege we can not help but to question our sense of self, our worth, or the value that we bring to this world. Under siege many of us seek to come to terms with and negotiate this daily circus through harmful manipulations of our minds and bodies.   For many of our clients the acts starving, binging, purging, and compulsively overeating help quiet the chronic painful din of the outside world.  For many of us these tools of survival create a safe haven in which the only cost is that of one's self.

At our core we are hard wired for survival and we will survive at all costs. This is true even if our means of survival will ultimately kill us. An eating disorder is the perfect example of a temporarily death-defying survival tactic. In the end, it will kill. As an eating disorder helps us survive it is also actively killing us. Anyone who has ever struggled with and/or loved someone struggling with an eating disorder will tell you eating disorders are body wrecking, relationship ruining, mind demolishing, and life-destroying illnesses.

We look forward to seeing you there!
