It is highly likely that you will have participants with trauma histories in your mindful eating groups or work with individuals. There are many things to be thoughtful about when working with survivors of abuse or neglect. Informed planning is important, but so is the teacher’s self-reflection about how they view these participants.
Participants will be able to establish one way in which they can create an inclusive physical environment for survivors of abuse in a mindful eating program.
Charlotte Wilkins, MSW, LCSW has for the past 8 years traveled internationally with her co-teacher, Jan Chozen Bays, MD, training professionals in the Mindful Eating-Conscious Living™ program. Their wish is to help end the suffering that surrounds food, eating and body image.
As a psychotherapist she specialized in working with women who had experienced childhood abuse and struggled with depression, anxiety and unbalanced eating patterns. Charlotte is the senior trainer for ME-CL 1 & 2 trainings MBSR training, a Certified MBSR teacher, mentor of teachers-in-training, and serves as an advisor to The Center for Mindful Eating.
Never without a sense of humor about herself, she is happiest in her garden which she considers her therapy and it’s “Dirt cheap!” She is an avid bread bake which is for her a hands-on meditation.
