THERAPY CARDS FOR USE IN THE TREATMENT OF EATING DISORDERS
These cards support individuals with an eating disorder by exploring the battle between the “Head Space” ruled by Inner Critics and the “Heart Space” ruled by the Core Self and guided by Internal Sages.
They are designed to support young people and adults undergoing treatment for an eating disorder in a playful and creative way using an engaging visual medium.
These cards are based on empirical evidence in the field of ED treatment. They take participants on a journey of self-discovery and self-reflection, focusing on how personality traits can work for and against them.
The cards then focus on the harsh inner critics individuals with ED often possess and how these can hijack personality traits to reinforce the ED. The inner critics live in the ‘Head Space’ and make sufferers feel anxious and bad about themselves.
