Have you worked with the patient who one day idealized you and next devalued your skills? The Borderline, who finds refuge in food addiction. Borderline personality is an underlying character structure, marked by a fragmented sense of identity and maladaptive patterns of perceiving, behaving and relating to others. Food provides a soothing antidote to feeling of shame, betrayal and the longing for a positive mother. Ericksonian hypnosis paves the way to reach the habitually oppositional patient.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the utilization principle as it applies to treating the food addict.
  2. To describe the pain chain response of the addictive spiral.
