In this last episode of Series 2, expert Sarah Dillon explains how and why trauma has such a profound and negative effect on the relationship children have with food.
Their behaviours with it might include:

  • hoarding
  • stealing
  • hiding
  • eating all the time
  • refusing food
  • only eating certain types of food
  • gorging on sugar or sugar products

All of these have a perfectly good explanation which reflect the upsetting experiences of a child's early years.
Not only are all these behaviours typical of a child who has undergone abuse and neglect, but they also express the need to find replacements for the love and care that has been missing.
What they require from their parents now are the therapeutic parenting techniques set out by Sarah who brings humour and colour to the strategies she knows, from experience, really work.
