  2. 2. <ul><li>“ We must welcome the future, remembering that soon it will be passed; and we must respect the past, remembering that once it was all that was humanly possible.&quot; </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  3. 3. <ul><li>Most of us have experienced certain distress </li></ul><ul><li>It's easier to recognize misdirected emotions in somebody else </li></ul><ul><li>From infancy we rid ourselves of painful feelings by projecting them out into the world or another person. </li></ul><ul><li>Young children do not yet have the internal ability to handle their feelings alone </li></ul><ul><li>The expectation is that our parents will be able to reflect the feelings back to us in more manageable doses. </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes parents cannot handle the child's needs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Because they are going through stressful period </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They are just unable to intuitively match the child urgent demands. </li></ul></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year.

  4. 4. <ul><li>When parents are overwhelmed by their children </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the child begins to experience the world as unable to meet its basic requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the world seems abandoning, attacking, persecutory, and cruel. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>children develop the view that their needs are inappropriate or wrong </li></ul></ul><ul><li>One outcome is the individual gives up on having her needs met. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How are the ED symptoms a solution to not getting needs met ? </li></ul></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  5. 5. <ul><li>Early lack of ability to get basic needs met may also lead to the defense of splitting. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Many children are unable to perceive the parent as &quot;doing the best they can.&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The child's egocentric mind believes the parent can only handle as much anger and emotions as he or she can. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Since emotions or overwhelming to him or her, she believes the emotions would therefore be overwhelming to the parents. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expressing these emotions to the parent risks abandonment, and ultimately the child's death. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Instead of risking abandonment and death, the child splits the parent seeing the parent as all good and his or her needs as all-bad. </li></ul></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year.

  6. 6. <ul><li>As the eating disorder patient begins to recognize that not all riches, goodness or abilities lie within the world of others, she will naturally be less envious. </li></ul><ul><li>Envy is anger directed towards someone because they have something you want </li></ul><ul><li>The Anger protects the person from anxiety </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What things might the ED patient be envious of? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How might she display this anger? </li></ul></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  7. 7. <ul><li>The patient might also have strong transference reactions to the therapist—male or female </li></ul><ul><li>These reactions might lead to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Envy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power Struggles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sadness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Discuss why each of these might occur and how you could constructively deal with it in treatment </li></ul></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  8. 8. <ul><li>Is important for family members therapist and friends to be aware the generosity may be particularly aversive to the individual with an eating disorder. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Why? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It causes even more envy because she feels so unable to give anything herself. </li></ul><ul><li>She must then attempt show others up to deflate the value of those who seem to have more than she has. </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  9. 9. <ul><li>By becoming the thinnest or the greatest suffer anorexic patient creates within herself an illusion of power. </li></ul><ul><li>Her target weight becomes a measurable, achievable goal. </li></ul><ul><li>She then has the right to feel special because she is finally achieved something grand. </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  10. 10. <ul><li>Looking into the history of the eating-disordered patients, it is not uncommon to find </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a child who either had to act as the parent and was thus deprived of her childhood, or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a child who served as a vessel for the parent to live vicariously through her and was thus deprived of her own unique childhood. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Their illness permits them to turn the tables on those who symbolically or realistically deprive them of their childhoods. </li></ul><ul><li>For once they hold the power to cause concern or worry. </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  11. 11. <ul><li>Because people with eating disorders believe they've sacrificed their own lives for others they also believe that they deserve to be treated better. </li></ul><ul><li>They seem to feel entitled to special treatment and understanding. </li></ul><ul><li>Feelings of entitlement may breed contempt and inappropriate displays of frustration and anger </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  12. 12. <ul><li>Psychodynamic treatment helps us to examine the important memories and how we will inadvertently play out the past. </li></ul><ul><li>We also come to see how our present is shaped by our parents and other loved ones. </li></ul><ul><li>These people for whom we have a memory are referred to as identifications and incorporations. </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  13. 13. <ul><li>Children raised in an environment in which the parents are never satisfied and reprimands them repeatedly may develop eating disorders. </li></ul><ul><li>On a conscious level patients, love their parents and want to emulate and please them </li></ul><ul><li>The child who has identified with the parental drive to control and punish may end up relentlessly punishing herself </li></ul><ul><li>She may take on some of their negative qualities (the solution) to avoid being helplessly subjected to her parents anger, </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  14. 14. <ul><li>The individual who has internalized a parent who finds her unlovable or despicable will: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>be unable to nurture her own good qualities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fail to take advantage of opportunities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Engage in relentless self punishment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be terrified of success of the good </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How is this manifested in ED symptoms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are the solutions to an “unsatisfied” parent? </li></ul></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  15. 15. <ul><li>What can be done when aggression is bottled up inside? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It can be directed against the external world. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Just as her parents treated her poorly, she will treat her friends and others poorly. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relationships will be spoiled because only another masochist can tolerate the overt criticisms of one with so much self-hatred. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The patient must develop friendships that show her that interdependence does not destroy independence. </li></ul><ul><li>By identifying with the aggressor, patients cope with life, wreaking havoc on others as it was done to them. </li></ul><ul><li>They are compelled to repeat the past over because it is the only past that they have or know. </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  16. 16. <ul><li>All persons in the eating-disordered population have one facet in common: given the opportunity, they can use their intellect either constructively or destructively. </li></ul><ul><li>One way to understand eating disorders is to view them as highly innovative (albeit destructive) defense mechanisms. </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes they are found with other symptoms that also alleviate anxiety pain and sadness such as substance abuse, compulsive exercise </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year.

How? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relying on other people creates an unsettling anxiety that must be allayed. How? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The therapist must be made to feel flawed and inefficient and therefore unenviable and not needed. (Strike first to prevent abandonment) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is better to defeat treatment than to acknowledge one's dependence and risk rejection. What is this a solution to? </li></ul></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year. Copyright AllCEUs.com
  18. 18. <ul><li>Psychotherapy can be used to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify defense mechanisms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop alternate solutions to cope with defended emotions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allow the patient is to see how a therapist deals with life and his or her own imperfections. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It is crucial for patients to remember the therapist cannot provide a perfect understanding or immediate cure. </li></ul><ul><li>The individual with an eating disorder must feel that her own point of view and strengths are appreciated. </li></ul>Unlimited CEUs $99 per year.
