There are many forms of adolescent binge eating disorder treatment. They cover the spectrum from traditional forms of psychotherapy such as talk therapy to medication regimens. A unique form of treatment that is beginning to get more attention is movement therapy. The American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) says that movement therapy is used in a wide variety of settings, from psychiatric hospitals to outpatient care centers.
Reestablishing the Mind/Body Connection
It’s not uncommon for a person with binge eating disorder to develop a profound disconnect between their mind and their body. In other cases, the disconnect is what led to the eating disorder. Either way, movement therapy can help reestablish that critical connection.
