ACT for Anorexia Nervosa with Rhonda Merwin, PhD

$20.00

Speakers: Rhonda Merwin, PhD; Instructor: Angela Coreil, PhD
CEU(s) Available: 1.0 ACE Event CEUs for BCBAs through DrDJMoran, Provider # OP-20-3305
Duration: 50 minutes
Modality: Online, on-demand, video.

Abstract: Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by refusal to maintain a healthy body weight, extreme fear of gaining weight, and distorted self-image of being fat when one is actually underweight. Anorexia affects mostly adolescent girls and young women, with up to 10% of high school girls suffering from this illness at some point in their lives. The mortality rate of anorexia nervosa among individuals who suffer from this illness is 12 times higher than that of the general population.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy may focus on how the client’s beliefs about themselves, the world, and their values may conflict with their short-term goals of weight loss. This approach can help clients learn to accept uncomfortable feelings rather than trying to avoid them or change them. This therapy can also help clients commit to long-term changes in behavior that support a healthy lifestyle rather than focusing solely on immediate results.

Learning Objectives:
1. Name one aspect of historical context in current or past culture that might contribute to identification with views of the self that may function to promote a maladaptive relationship with food.
2. Identify one way in which early learning experiences may impact deictics (self, other, world relations).
