Traumatized Overeaters

Some people's eating issues are a result of major trauma in their lives: physical or sexual abuse or abandonment at an early age can result in compulsive overeating. Traumatized overeaters may binge when they are reminded of their abuse issues, or when they are beginning to act in ways that used to lead to their being abused as children.

While traumatized overeaters may benefit from groups and workshops, most need to resolve their trauma issues in one-on-one therapy before they can successfully overcome their eating issues. Lifestyle coaching can, at times, be useful as an adjunct to that work.
