This teleconference will teach disregulated eaters and the clinicians who work with them how to identify and resolve the unconscious, underlying conflicts which may prevent ongoing “normal" eating, healthy weight stabilization, and excellent self-care. When the starting and stopping of healthy behaviors are understood as the playing out of conflictual feelings, troubled eaters have a chance to explore and resolve their ambivalence so that their intentions and behavior align permanently.
· To understand how underlying, unconscious mixed feelings in seven key areas can prevent taking good care of the self long-term
· To identify the seven conflicts which drive on-off self-care, including eating healthfully and staying fit
· To learn how to resolve these seven key conflicts in order to promote positive permanent practices for health and fitness
