I believe the path to healing body image issues involves understanding the root of how our current relationship with our bodies developed, as well as setting a new foundation based in a new narrative about our bodies that is firmly planted in acceptance and values-based self-knowledge, self-care, enhanced self-esteem, and loving kindness.

I have borrowed Andrew Seuber's approach to working with a negative body image, that is from the inside out. He suggests that "The negative image is understood as a dissociated and shame-based “part” of the personality in need of understanding and compassion, achieved via mindful awareness, “parts” dialogue and trauma processing. The first step is to create healthy separation between the "observing" or aware Self and the part(s) absorbed in the eating disorder via mindful awareness. Once this separation between the "whole" self and part of self is established, the Gestalt polarity tradition (empty chairs) is utilized to develop understanding of the shame-based part. Understanding leads to compassion for the eating disordered part from a non-enmeshed state of consciousness, aka the aware self, the experiencing self, the observing self. Healing of the eating disordered part occurs when that part no longer feels exiled as a "not-I" and is assisted in processing the traumatic roots of the disorder."
