Eating disorders are complex, multi-layered and pernicious. And yet, even the best evidenced-based interventions currently available have limited long-term outcomes. Ironically, the body, the very stage where the war is waged, may be the missing link to effective treatment for eating disorders. Embodied Recovery is a new model of treatment designed to bring the body itself to the forefront of the treatment process. Grounded in the science of Polyvagal Theory, the ERED model addresses the role of neurobiological organization, the subjective experience of self, and our basic human needs for attachment and defense on our capacity to eat and digest effectively.
