Course Description

Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental illnesses that can affect people of all backgrounds. No one knows exactly what causes eating disorders, but a growing consensus suggests that a range of biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors develop an eating disorder. Once the disorder has taken hold, it can become a self-sustaining process that usually requires professional help and support to recover. Early detection, initial evaluation, and effective treatment are important steps that can help an eating disorder sufferer move into recovery more quickly, preventing the disorder from progressing to a more severe or chronic state. This course provides clinicians with assessment skills and tools to identify the warning signs of eating disorders and provides interventions and approaches in addressing eating disorders in your practice and clinic. Time will be spent addressing ethical and legal considerations in treatment including documentation, when to refer to a higher level of care, and providing pertinent cultural resources and advocacy information for eating disorders.
