Working with Emptiness

Approved for 6.5 EMDRIA Credits


Emptiness may be defined as a generalized feeling of apathy, boredom, and social alienation. Although the feeling of emptiness is part of the natural process of grief, there are special clinical populations that relate to emptiness in a particular way such as Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and some eating disorders (ED). In BPD, the feeling of emptiness is so devastating that people resort to all kinds of destructive behaviors in an attempt to fill it up. In ED, emptiness can be confusing, since clients may not be able to distinguish between a feeling of emptiness related to hunger and an emotional emptiness, thus resorting to food to fill it up and soothe it. This workshop will explore the feeling of emptiness and its relationship to all the person cannot accept about himself/herself. It will suggest treatment, especially as emptiness related to BPD and ED.
