A Thought Provoking Series
∙Open Discussions
∙Approachable, non-judgmental, interactive

Conversation :  Food and Love: how do we eat; how do we love ourselves and allow others to love us?

We all eat. We need to eat to survive. The way in which we process our need to be nourished often parallels how we function in other parts of our lives. We often see this in our ability to love and be loved, and in the way in which we connect with others. As clinicians, we can gain a better understanding of our clients and help them better understand themselves through looking at their relationship with food, how they eat, and how they feed other people. This conversation will look at why and how we eat the way we do, and its relationship with how we function in various aspects of our lives.  

Course Objectives:
Participants in this course will learn the following skills:
1.      Participants will develop the skills to analyze how their clients process food and love.
2.      Participants will be able to describe the relationship between nourish and nurture.
3.      Participants will be able to illustrate their counter-transference reactions to patients who withhold or consume us with their needs.
4.     Participants will be able to identify how transference can inform clinicians, how our patients relate to their food and their primal need to nourish themselves and others.
