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
