Self-compassion is a life-giving skill during the process of recovering from an eating disorder. Current research supports self-compassion’s ability to mediate self-critical thoughts, regulate emotion as well as promote motivation; all essential skills needed to attain, and most importantly, to sustain recovery. Unfortunately, clients suffering with eating disorders often experience a great deal of resistance or “backdraft” to receiving self-compassion due to the high levels of criticism and shame that they hold, especially towards their body. As clinicians, it is imperative to learn the unique process and delivery method of self-compassion that allows our clients to not only receive but rather, embody self-compassion. Through embodiment, a bottom up approach that uses somatic interventions along with neurobiological psychoeducation, we teach self-compassion from the inside out, open to common humanity, reduce shame and self-identification, and re-connect our clients with a new self-compassionate view toward their body and self that promotes, supports and sustains healing.
