What Is Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™?
Why Is Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy So Effective?
How Can You Use Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy with Clients?
In 1995, Dr. Dorie McCubbrey began teaching her clients the five principles of Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ which had guided her own recovery from eating disorders. In 2003, Dr. Dorie was approached by other therapists who requested training to use her EDIT™ approach. Dr. Dorie subsequently created the EDIT™ Training Institute LLC, which provides training and certification in the Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ method. Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ has been used to guide successful recovery from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and other types of eating disorders and issues with eating, exercise and weight. EDIT™ features evidence-based practices combined with cutting-edge tools and techniques. In the Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ treatment philosophy, eating disorders are viewed as coping mechanisms which stem from the “false self.” EDIT™ recovery is about remembering and reconnecting with one’s “True Self.” Although eating disorders can go to an extreme and require medical intervention, EDIT™ is designed for individuals who are experiencing mild-to-moderate eating disorder symptoms. The EDIT™ method guides clients to decipher the “messages” of their eating disorders by becoming curious about their underlying cause. EDIT™ techniques offer strategies to reduce eating disorder behaviors, but true symptom resolution is a natural outcome when clients address the root cause of their eating disorders. As EDIT™ protocols continue, holistic healing occurs at all levels of the True Self — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual
