The San Giorgio Institute is a centre dedicated to the treatment of patients suffering from Eating Disorders and Obesity.
The residential and semi-residential treatment of eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder) is conceived as a multidisciplinary intervention of a team, in which different professionals are integrated to offer a complete and intensive care. The team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, nutritionists, dieticians, physiotherapists, psychiatric rehabilitation technicians and professional nurses. The integrated approach harmonizes therapeutic interventions to ensure a path of care in which body and mind proceed together towards the remission of eating symptoms and mental illness.
The Institute’s great resource is also the possibility of welcoming patients aged between 12 and 18 years: a special type of therapeutic path is dedicated to them, designed and developed on the basis of the specific needs of this evolutionary phase. During the day, an individualized clinical therapeutic path is followed, supported by individual psychological interviews and protected meetings with the family. Afternoon rehabilitation activities are planned, such as:
- PSYCHOLOGICAL AND CORPOREAL TECHNIQUES
- BODY SELF-PERCEPTION
- EMOTIONAL DYNAMICS
- HUMAN NUTRITION
- COOKING THERAPY
- EXPERIENTIAL GROUP ACTIVITY
- ART THERAPY
- QI GONG AND MEDITATION
