Eating disorders are mental illnesses that are notoriously difficult to treat. The intersection of emotional and physical symptomology presents a unique challenge for even the most experienced clinician. This workshop will provide participants with current diagnostic criteria, research findings from evidence-based treatments, culturally inclusive treatment methods, and information on effectively matching levels of care to the degree of patients’ psychological and medical severity. Clinicians will learn how to best help clients engage with the recovery process in order to make sustainable change. Through the use of didactic and experiential modalities as well as small group work, participants will leave this workshop more confident in their skills to help individuals who suffer from these complex disorders. Note: this workshop is designed for clinicians newer to eating disorders, not the experienced eating disorder clinician.
