Description of Presentation:  

Internal Family Systems is becoming increasingly popular as a therapeutic treatment modality, and is useful in supporting those suffering with disordered eating to organize and better understand their difficulties and why they might engage in behavior that doesn’t serve them. This presentation will build on the premises of IFS therapy, leveraging principles of family feeding dynamics to model the necessary “parts” of a healthy relationship with food and improved habits of nutritional self-care. Examples of how different dysfunctional eating patterns can be understood as the over- or under-functioning of these parts and how to design interventions to correct that imbalance, helping our clients establish functional eating habits and heal their relationship with food.

Learning Objectives:

Based on the content of the workshop participants will be able to:

1. Demonstrate a basic understanding of parts work in Internal Family System

2. Discuss the Division of Responsibility roles in feeding and eating

3. Explain how the different “jobs” in feeding and eating show up in different eating disorder presentations
