The Feminine Repressed: Unconscious Cultural Impacts on Disordered Eating Patterns


The feminine: our source of intuition, compassion, and nourishment. We see this archetypal element repressed in masculine-dominant cultures where, collectively, we're chasing material excess but starving for soul. Utilizing a depth lens to view this stifled nourishment as a metaphor, we might begin to understand food bingeing, purging, and restricting in a new way.

The presentation provides:

  • A high level review of Carl Jung's concepts of the psyche

  • An exploration of the meaning of the feminine and the impact its cultural repression has on disordered eating patterns

  • Tools for working with this perspective to support your clients who struggle with food and/or body image issues 

Audience: Mental health professionals

Duration: 1.5 - 2 hours
