According to Cynthia M. Bulik, Ph.D., author of Midlife Eating Disorders: Your Journey to Recovery


“Countless men and women in midlife and beyond, from all ethnic backgrounds, struggle with eating disorders. Some have suffered since youth; others relapsed in midlife, often after a stressor such as infidelity, divorce, death of a loved one, menopause, or retirement.”

This webinar is an opportunity for you to learn about, what does a female midlife crisis look like? With an ED Is it an  attempt to turn back time? Find out your answers on 24th June 2015.

She has worked in psychiatric hospitals, schools, mental health agencies, and in private practice with a broad span of patients, and has specialized in both Eating Disorders and issues of age. Dr. Weinstock’s life in the dance world has given her a personal perspective on both the travails of eating disorders and the joy of recovery. Her dissertation was entitled Women Dancers inMidlife: Coping with the Transition, which advanced her scholarship in and treatment of body image issues, and which inspired a series of ongoing workshops. Dr. Weinstock’s theoretical orientation includes psychodynamic, Jungian, feminist, cognitive behavioral, and existential approaches. Since joining the Monarch Cove staff, Dr. Weinstock has been trained in and using Internal Family Systems with her clients. She is the current communications co-chair and past President of the CA Chapter of the American Dance Therapy Association, sits on the research committee of the national association, and is the representative to ACCAHC. She studies dance with her mentor Anna Halprin, who certified her to teach Movement Ritual.
In this webinar, we will define terms and review epidemiology of eating disorders for women in midlife. We will explore the challenges of body image in aging women confronted by messages that are unavoidable, looking back on the literature to discuss how we are currently faring. Research of the presenter in regard to women dancers in midlife will be referenced as a model for the thesis of this presentation. As aging clinicians, we have personal challenges to face which can add poignancy to our work. We will explore the responsibility as clinicians and role models to remain conscious of our personal attitudes and assess how we represent and reflect body/mind health in our work with our clients, patients, and students, and also with our colleagues across professions.


Learning Objectives: 
Participants will be able to:
1. Define diagnostic categories of eating disorders
2. Describe epidemiology of eating disorders in women in midlife
3. Implement at least 3 interventions working with women and body image
4. Assess their current relationship with body image
