Support & Containment In Your Environment To Help You Overcome Challenges
While stabilization is the first crucial step in achieving a full recovery, it is only the beginning.
In order to best support you, we want to look beyond symptom management. Identifying maintaining factors of the eating disorder allows us to tailor our therapeutic support to meet your unique recovery needs, We will work with you and your team to provide the necessary skills-based interventions so that you can build the “mental muscles” for recovery and no longer need to fall back to the default eating disorder mindset.
Maintaining factors are a combination of traits, temperament, and internal and external stressors that keep the eating disorder alive. Examples of maintaining factors include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive Inflexibility
- Beliefs about positive function of eating disorder
- Experiential Avoidance
- Over-evaluation on weight and shape
- Difficulty tolerating negative emotions, conflict resolution, social anxiety, perceived inability to hand distress and discomfort, etc.).
