Process Addictions

When we think of addictions we often imagine a substance, such as a drug, alcohol or food, to be addicted to. Each of these substances have physiological addicting traits, however, when we consider process addictions, we are addressing the actions and underlying dynamics of addiction. The process of eating, the process of shopping and the process of self injury can be considered and understood psychodynamically in order to find relief and manage life more effectively.
