People are often beleaguered by their ongoing failures to overcome an eating disorder, yet a Solution Focused approach to addressing and healing from such a painful condition can give a people feelings of competence and power or control. When highly valued tasks are accomplished, then, over time, they can develop a more positive level of self-esteem and self-worth. This approach to therapy focuses on the client's own mastery experiences related to eating/ restricting/ purging behaviors. Thus an individual can experience a positive ripple effect that can spill over and influence other aspects of one's life.
