    Hi Cynthia,

    I don’t have experience with working with eating disorders, but I’m thinking of Ana Gomez’s work in using EMDR games to help clients, particularly children, become familiar with the different parts of processing ahead of time and using these games to build up affect tolerance for the uncomfortable feelings. This also helps with titrating the client’s experience so they have the tools to stay regulated when processing. Maybe looking at resources from Ana Gomez would be helpful for working with your client. The fact that she is using tapping before eating seems very positive!
