Obsession with food and weight are often attempts to cope with unresolved emotional issues such as depression, rage, powerlessness, and loss. Art therapy is a special tool that can help provide access to those hidden feelings that contain the key to our struggles. In group or individual sessions, we will employ a variety of art therapy techniques specifically designed to explore the issues that have led to obesity, compulsive eating, binging, purging, starving, or laxative abuse. Emphasis will be on discovering new ways to nurture oneself. Previous art experience is not necessary. Special attention paid to gender issues.
