Agnes Windram - Benefits of FOT and an experiential framework in the treatment of chronic eating disorders. A clinical case study
The presentation will focus on the case of a client in her thirties suffering from eating disorders since early childhood. After being in therapy for the last 20 years, she wanted to try a more experiential approach. After working together weekly using FOT for the last 6 months, she started to develop a new relationship to her body, feelings, senses, as well as creating new ways of interacting with significant others. Little by little, her relation to food becomes more manageable and less anxiety-provoking. I would like to share with you how by experiencing FOT, she has created a brave space for herself, become more present to her felt senses, and built her own way of being in interaction with herself and others.
