Eating Disorders as Self Protective: Understanding and Working with the Unbearable Shame of Being Failed

Knowing how to assess and treat people with anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating disorders requires an ability not only to ask the right questions, but to have a capacity to understand and hold the profound self-hate that fuels these symptoms. In this course, clinicians will develop a deeper understanding of the ways in which eating disorders are employed as a means of self-protection from the injurious failures of their primary caretakers through attacks on the self. This understanding will be informed by Freud’s seminal paper “Mourning and Melancholia” and by object relations, self-psychology, and contemporary relational readings.

Lisa BogradLisa Bograd, LMFT, has been working with people with eating disorders, and their partners and parents, for close to 15 years. She has trained for three years with the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute and the Northern California chapter of the Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis. Bograd gives lectures to professionals, interns, and trainees on eating disorder treatment and assessment. She also runs workshops and groups for people with eating disorders and their loved ones. She has private practices in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Orinda where she specializes in working with adults and adolescents with Eating Disorders, Addictions, and Codependency.
