EDIT™ Theory & Treatment Planning

Dr. Dorie discovered the five EDIT™ Principles during her own journey of recovery from eating disorders. Now as a clinician, she has been guiding clients with this approach of “complete recovery” for nearly 20 years. Learn Dr. Dorie’s holistic concepts of the EDIT™ Theory, plus discover how to apply the theory for case conceptualization and treatment planning.

EDIT™ Five Principles – Dialogue Role Plays

During this interactive workshop segment, participants will explore the concept of “thought ED-ITs” – to shift from the mindset of the Eating Disorder (ED) into the healing wisdom of the Intuitive Therapist (IT). Role plays will illustrate a dialogue between ED and IT, for each of the five EDIT™ Principles – Love Your Self, Be True To Your Self, Express Your Self, Give To Your Self, Believe In Your Self.

EDIT™ Techniques – Body Image Therapy

In this hands-on segment, participants will learn several techniques designed to guide clients to improve their body image. From “Thought ED-II” worksheets to art projects to guided visualizations, you’ll enhance the “tools” in your “therapist toolbox.”

EDIT™ Techniques – Intuitive Eating Lunch

Dr. Dorie has a unique perspective on Intuitive Eating, featuring the “Three Reasons Why We Eat” and how to compassionately enhance awareness of these reasons as a means of transforming eating-disordered behaviors.  You’ll learn how to apply Dr. Dorie’s key strategies for Intuitive Eating, as you enjoy a special catered lunch, featuring techniques you can use during meal sessions with your clients.

EDIT™ Techniques – Intuitive Exercise Training

Discover your own “Intuitive Trainer” and remember how to have fun with fitness while exploring beautiful Cheesman Park, and practice a Mindfulness Movement Meditation which you can share with your clients.

EDIT™ Techniques – 5R Coping Skills

The EDIT™ Principle of “Express Your Self” involves the awareness of thoughts, feelings and needs – and how to meet needs in healthy ways. You’ll learn how to use a key EDIT™ Worksheet entitled, “5R Coping Skills.” In addition, you’ll learn other strategies to support clients through a process of awareness, coping and ultimately healing their core issues.

EDIT™ Techniques – Intuitive Self-Care

This EDIT™ Principle of “Give To Your Self” involves the development of a routine of Intuitive Self-Care, to replace eating-disordered behaviors with foundations for overall wellbeing. As part of this segment, you’ll develop your own plan for Intuitive Self-Care (to practice what you preach)!

EDIT™ Techniques – Relapse Prevention

The EDIT™ Theory has the perspective that “complete recovery from eating disorders is possible” – viewing recovery as an unfolding journey – and that without ongoing Intuitive Self-Care, relapse is also possible. In this segment, you’ll learn the essential strategies for relapse prevention, and how to use the key EDIT™ Worksheets designed to support client success.
