Shame has played a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of eating disorders, and individuals struggle to sustain the change they make as a result. In this presentation, we will discuss the role shame plays in eating disorder development and treatment, strategies to mitigate the effect of shame on the recovery process, and how to support clients in engaging in vulnerability, values and trust-building in their lives. Specific, take-away interventions will be shared that can be used in sessions and groups. Strategies from The Daring Way, a highly experiential methodology developed by research professor and author, Dr. Brene Brown, will be included.
