IN THIS PODCAST
- Avoid rigidity
- It is just gravity
Just like there is no one cause for an eating disorder, we also know there is no one intervention, and everyone deserves individualized care. (Gabrielle Alyse)Clinicians need to meet clients where they are at instead of only focusing on where their eating disorder is. The therapeutic alliance between clinician and client is crucial to treatment and recovery from disordered eating and must therefore be kept central and maintained throughout treatment.
If you can establish the therapeutic alliance, your clients have a much higher likelihood of getting better because if they trust you, they will try [the] interventions. (Gabrielle Alyse)
Avoid rigidityDue to the nature of eating disorders and the fact that they represent differently from person to person, one-size-fits-all and rigid treatment programs and methods do not work effectively. Using informed techniques and treatment plans is more effective. The four components of CBT are:
- emotional regulation
- distress tolerance
- interpersonal effectiveness
It is just gravityThe number on the scale is just gravity. It has nothing to do with who you are as a person and your value.
A smaller body is not a better body, and it does not lead to a better life because it is really not about our body anyway. (Gabrielle Alyse)Therapy is a supportive environment where the goal is about healing and not about the timeline. It does not matter how long it takes or where you are currently at because the goal is to get to a place of wellness without discomfort.
