Treatment at Partners in Change begins with helping individuals understand why and how problems with eating and body image developed. We explore the underlying needs that the eating disorder has attempted to fill and learn healthier skills to meet those needs.
Treatment involves increased commitment to personal values, identification of and working towards personal goals, setting healthy boundaries, engaging in skillful thinking, reducing harmful thinking, and increasing emotional management skills.
Treatment approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Schema-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Treatment, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.
