Eating Disorders: Assessment and Treatment

Eating disorders are serious and complicated to assess, diagnose and treat. Therapists need training to identify the signs and symptoms of eating disorders. In this session, you'll learn how to understand the range of issues that present as an eating disorder and how to identify and treat them. You'll gain an understanding of the spectrum from how disordered eating to serious eating disorders can be treated with a team approach and how your own relationship with food and personal body image may impact diagnosis and treatment.
