The Three Chairs – A Clinical Intervention for Decreasing Shame and Increasing Insight

Join Castlewood Treatment Centers and Rock Recovery for a special CE event for treatment providers.

The Three Chairs – A Clinical Intervention for Decreasing Shame and Increasing Insight

Eating Disorder behaviors such as bingeing, purging, over-exercising, and restricting can be difficult for both clients and professionals to understand. The same can be said for other compulsive behaviors such as self-harm, sexual impulsivity and video game addictions. This confusion can create shame, self-hatred and a feeling of hopelessness. The Three Chairs intervention identifies three simultaneous (and often competing) motivations clients experience internally and helps put language to this experience thereby reducing shame, decreasing urges, interrupting the cycle of behaviors and increasing clarity and motivation for recovery.

Lunch will be provided and the event is free of charge.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will gain insight into the complex thoughts and emotions related to eating disorder and other compulsive urges
  2. Participants will learn a clinical intervention to use in individual or group settings with eating disorder clients
  3. Participants will learn how to help clients translate the intervention into daily, practical skills to help with compulsive urges, shame and motivation
