Movement in Eating Disorder Treatment:  From Compulsion and Clinging to Flexibility and Freedom

Presented by Riley Nickols, PhD, Director of the Victory Program at McCallum Place.

Research supports the safe and gradual integration of physical activity into eating disorder treatment once an individual is medically stable, nutritionally compliant, meeting treatment targets, and has demonstrated an ability to adhere to physical activity guidelines. It is important that the eating disorder treatment team collaboratively supports individuals to establish balanced fitness practices with the intent to develop a more wholesome and joyful relationship to physical activity.  This presentation will highlight the cultivation of flexibility and freedom that can result by targeting compulsive and unwholesome exercise practices through supportive integration of movement during treatment.
