It’s exactly what it sounds like. ‘Chewing and spitting’ – occasionally known as ‘c/s’ to sufferers and ‘CHSP’ to psychologists – is a disordered eating behaviour where individuals chew up and then spit out their food in an effort to lose weight. But it’s so much more than that.
Please find below another excellent webinar from Castlewood Treatment Centre. This webinar discusses one of the shadiest and less discussed behaviours of of Eating Disorder World, Chewing and Spitting. I first came across this behavior at the Eating Disorder Clinic. Chewing and spitting is particularly common in people with anorexia who struggle with cravings and it is an almost bulimic sort of thing to do. There’s high levels of anxiety and shame in people who do this. They often wonder what people would think of them for spitting out food, they often think they are the only one who does it. This webinar will provide many answers to this behavior and will provide list of things to help people over come this behaviour.
The Webinar will also look at Rumination. Rumination disorder is an eating disorder in which a person — usually an infant or young child — brings back up and re-chews partially digested food that has already been swallowed. In most cases, the re-chewed food is then swallowed again; but occasionally, the child will spit it out.
Please Do Sign up. We hope to see you there.
