Course offerings in Tier 2 explore clinical applications of foundational concepts, theoretical models, therapeutic maps and skills introduced in Tier 1 courses. Consistent with the material being taught, the learning process combines top-down and bottom-up learning. In this way, the first “client” is the provider. Tier 2 course offerings invite an immersive experience into exploration of what enhances and inhibits embodiment and the corresponding impact on relational, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Tier 2 courses provide specific examples of interventions to use with clients to influence mental and physical health.
Coming to Our Senses About Eating Disorders Treatment: An Exploration of Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Eating Disorders
Coming to Our Senses about Eating Disorders Treatment is an exploration of how Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) impacts a person’s relationship with food, the eating process and body perception. Current research shows autism is overrepresented in individuals battling an eating disorder (ED) and those with both disorders have the poorest treatment outcomes. Research also supports a link between SPD and ARFID as well as a link between visual processing patterns and body dysmorphia.
