The Appetite Episode #77: 

How to Be in Your Body: Attachment and Emotion in Somatic Psychotherapy


How does your body carry emotion? Did you know that the answer to this question can serve as a window into understanding not only your relationship to food but your attachment style and personality as well? Opal’s Milieu Therapist Lead, Madeline Young, BS, RYT, LMT, joins host Carter Umhau, LMHC to discuss her work with somatic psychotherapy and Core Energetics. Carter and Madeline will discuss the connections between mind, body, and emotions and how this can be applied in eating disorder recovery. Madeline will walk listeners through a visualization exercise to better understand these concepts through embodied learning.
