Professional Webinar
Date: October 14, 2015
Time: 12:00 PM
Location:
City:
State:
Details: Clinical work with the eating disorder client can be fraught with countertransference reactions. Clinicians may identify with their clients, feel devalued, angry or hopeless, and even experience loving feelings for individuals during the course of treatment. Many clinicians are taught to rid themselves of countertransference reactions, as these were once seen as barriers to treatment. However, new thinking holds that countertransference can, and often should, be used as a tool to enhance clinical work and strengthen the therapeutic alliance. This presentation will highlight the many “faces” of countertransference: the factors that contribute to countertransference, the effect of countertransference on therapeutic work, and how effective supervision can mitigate the negative consequences of countertransference and, conversely, be utilized to enhance treatment.

Details: The complexities of cultural differences permeate our clients’ identity -- their sense of themselves, their bodies and their relationship with food. A culturally responsive therapist and/or nutritional counselor is able to access the process of healing with the wisdom and information needed to honor the Hispanic culture and connect to its core values. An attuned therapeutic relationship, so essential for healing and commitment to treatment, is more likely to occur when the client feels that the clinician “gets me” and “gets who I am”. This presentation will not only provide information about Hispanic family and cultural core values, but will also provide attendees with tools to learn how to approach the unique challenges with food and body acceptance these clients face.
