Professional CE Workshop in Nashville, TN – Renfrew Center Foundation

Lunch included

2 CE Credits

The Renfrew Center of Nashville

Brentwood, TN 37027

Eating disorders manifest themselves as an onslaught on the body, but the physical symptoms mask the deeper internal emotional turmoil. As this emotional dysregulation is an impediment to recovery, attendees will learn methods to help clients choose a path of intentional emotional awareness to allow them to move through resistance, fear and lack of motivation. The use of mindfulness and emotional exposure will be discussed and practiced.
