Clinic Minute Please check back twice a month for updates!
I wrapped a 90 minute integrative session recently, with a young lady diagnosed previously with Aspergers and Binge Eating Disorder. After a mental health intake, plus a hair analysis, and food sensitivities assessment, I believe that the answer is different.
As an Integrative Therapist, the first thing that happens when I start to adjust the food part of my intervention, is fear! A typical client realizes that they have been using food to handle their feelings, when the terror sets in, because certain foods will be boxed out.
This F4L Integrative Clinic Minute by Tiffany Brown-Bush LPC, FDN is about Gratitude. Many clients are frustrated, angry, or disappointed about their weight loss, ability overcome an eating disorder, or their addiction. An important step within their treatment process is a gratitude practice. This video talks about treatment, goal setting, therapy expectations and why gratitude matters.
A common thinking trap is Black or White Thinking. This is also known as All or None Thinking. We unintentionally cheat our ability to experience a great deal of happiness, by engaging in this type of thinking. It's a type of viewing things, as either one way or the other. "A person is either ugly or beautiful!" "A person is either on program or not!"
I'm an Integrative Therapist which means that clients will not just discuss their rational and irrational thoughts, but also their lifestyle. Nutrition is a very important part of treatment, and requires accepting that changes are necessary. Client resistance to change must be overcome to reach goals...
I am a Rational Living Therapist, and we are very concerned with irrational labeling. This explains why I maywe disagree with the labeling that results from needing to use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of Mental Disorders. Many of these "diagnoses" actually are only labels for a set of behaviors. However, these labels often create a perception that the client "has" or "suffers from" a "disorder."
