This presentation will expose clinicians to the theoretical underpinnings of Narrative Therapy as well as provide them with concrete Narrative Therapy practices that can be utilized with clients who struggle with disordered eating. Participants will be guided through a hands-on externalization of a problem along with subsequent narrative questioning to elucidate the problem more clearly and highlight exceptions to the problem. They will walk away with applicable techniques that can be used with any clients who have a readily identifiable problem.
