Eating disorders are becoming increasingly better understood by our society. However, many are not fully aware of the prevalence, seriousness, the range of individuals affected by this illness. The purpose of this workshop is to identify causes, signs, effects, and treatment options for eating disorders, from the perspective of individuals who are struggling as well as their loved ones and treatment providers.
Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder, and yet it is often overlooked or misunderstood. This presentation will provide an overview of the etiology, assessment, nutritional and therapeutic treatment approaches, as well as the impact of weight, weight bias and weight stigma on those with Binge Eating Disorder.
This presentation will highlight the similarities and differences between ARFID and other eating disorders. Medical consequences will be explored including cardiac abnormalities, growth and pubertal delay as well as co-morbid psychiatric diagnoses. Evidence-based treatment, including specific coaching and food discovery, will be reviewed so that attendees can begin to incorporate them into their practice.
Our society is saturated with messages about diet culture and weight bias. These pervasive messages even extend into the healthcare field, making it difficult for Registered Dietitians to navigate nutrition conversations with clients in eating disorder recovery. In this course, we will review key concepts in nutrition for the treatment of eating disorders and practical methods of application for the Registered Dietitian. This will include nutrition assessment, common nutrition therapy practices, tools, and interventions.
Eating disorders are complex mental illnesses with significant medical complications. Disordered eating behaviors, including restriction, bingeing, purging and selectivity, can lead to medical complications in patients of all ages, genders, races, and socioeconomic statuses. Early detection is critical as many of the medical complications of eating disorders are not fully reversible but may be minimized with early intervention. Providers caring for patients can help to decrease the morbidity and mortality that is a direct result of eating disorders behaviors by understanding and recognizing the associated medical complications.
Our cultural culinary environment is diverse and ever-changing. Individuals with eating disorders and their families often come to treatment with multiple dietary limitations. Popular dieting beliefs, food trends, nutritional science, and cultural and spiritual heritage all must be considered when assisting any individual with adapting to eating patterns. This workshop provides practical advice for managing common dietary restrictions and limitations that individuals with eating disorders and their support systems identify at the initiation of care. This will include learning how to script conversations regarding changes to eating patterns.
During this presentation, Krista Crotty, LMFT, PsyD reviews common ethical principles as they apply to mental health and eating disorder treatment. The primary goal of this session is to start a dialogue among eating disorder treatment providers and to develop a forum to support each other with difficult decisions relating to eating disorder treatment. Involuntary hospitalizations are also discussed, as well as the risks of remaining at a lower level of care when a higher level of care is clinically and medically indicated.
Eating disorders occur more frequently and have a higher mortality rate in adolescents than any other mental health disorder, affecting all socioeconomic groups, minority populations, and sexual orientations. Eating disorders are even more common than Type 2 diabetes in this age group. Yet eating disorders remain under-recognized, underdiagnosed, and undertreated. This presentation will provide an overview of the current research into who is most susceptible and why, warning signs to look for, which evidence-based treatments are most effective, and when/how to refer for specialized care.
Do you ever wonder if your client struggling with substance use disorder is also struggling with an eating disorder? What help is available? Is it “bad enough” to refer to a specialist? These questions and more will be answered during ED and SUD: Why (they happen), What (to look for), When (to act), and How (to help). This two-hour long training will help professionals who want to learn more about eating disorder development, diagnosis, when to refer a client and what treatment options are available.
Athletics are a fantastic doorway to build the value of teamwork, create self-esteem, encourage physical conditioning, and potentially access a university scholarship or even a career. However, not all aspects of athletics are positive, especially when considering the pressure for an athlete to win and the emphasis on body weight, shape, and size. These toxic combinations can contribute to extreme psychological and physical stressors. The risk for athletes to develop eating disorders is exacerbated by the pressures of athletic competition and our culture’s emphasis on thinness. Eating disorders cut across all demographics, affecting female and male athletes. Do you know an athlete struggling with an eating disorder? Learn how to prevent this illness from sidelining them or potentially ending their collegiate athletic career.
In this presentation, Dr. Jillian Lampert discusses what is known about food insecurity to date, how to screen for food insecurity, how to connect clients and families to resources, and how to consider food insecurity along with the array of factors that impact recovery from an eating disorder.
Movies, commercials, magazines, and websites often portray thin people as ideal. Underweight models and photoshopped images are everywhere. Weight loss and image-enhancing beauty products send the message that being thinner and more attractive is the key to popularity, happiness, and success. This course will focus on the impact of social media on youth and body image. We will cover research on the negative impact of media consumption on kids and teens and discuss how media platforms affect self-image and eating disorders.
In this presentation, eating disorder specialist & advocate Chase Bannister, MDIV, MSW, LCSW, CEDS, shares important information related to eating disorders in the context of LGBTQIA+ communities, both broadly and with particularity. Time is set aside to learn and relearn terms often expressed as meaningful by persons who identify as LGBTQIA+, to encounter common themes amid specific populations within LGBTQIA+ communities, and to reflect on the experience of encountering dynamic (if not elusive) nomenclature in a clinical world built for categorization.
During this presentation, Chase Bannister, MDIV, MSW, LCSW, CEDS, shares how clinicians, researchers, and advocates with lived experience have influenced public awareness and public policy as it relates to early intervention, access to care, and treatment of eating disorders. Learn about the history of advocacy in the field of eating disorders, the ethical imperative for legislative advocacy in clinical work, and forward-looking pathways toward civic engagement & advocacy.
In this presentation, Dr. Sydney Brodeur-Johnson, Accanto Health’s Director of Clinical Services, outlines circumstances that may place college students at greater risk for the development of an eating disorder. Additionally, there is a discussion on university resources and efforts to support students with eating disorders.
In this presentation, Hilmar Wagner, MPH, RDN, CD, LN, details a weight-neutral approach to BED treatment. Many of our clients with Binge Eating Disorder (BED) live in larger bodies. Often these clients present for eating disorder treatment with a desire to reduce weight, which can be encouraged or supported by either their medical provider or as a result of weight bias and weight stigma. This presentation provides background on how weight loss focus can contribute to, or worsen, Binge Eating behaviors, how to address weight loss concerns for individuals engaged in treatment for BED and ways to support the client in examining their personal health goals through a weight-neutral, body-affirming approach.
In this presentation, Stacy Schilter Pisano, LMFT, CEDS-S gives an overview of our specialty program for Binge Eating Disorder, CARE IOP. Binge Eating Disorder is more prevalent than Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa combined, yet specialty programs are less common and may be more difficult to access. In response, CARE IOP, a virtual, stand-alone IOP, was researched and developed to meet the needs of individuals recovering from a pattern of binge eating. Offering weight-inclusive care and addressing the complex interplay of variables that contribute to binge or overeating behaviors, CARE IOP provides an opportunity to develop understanding, insight, skills and self-compassion related to one’s experience while focusing on the establishment of a peaceful relationship with food.
In this program, Alyssa Kalata, PhD, discusses the relationship between eating disorders and suicide. The session includes an overview of diagnostic criteria, prevalence rates, and quantitative and qualitative assessments of eating disorders, suicidal ideation, suicide attempts, and nonsuicidal self-injurious behaviors. There is also a discussion on integrated case conceptualization, as well as a review on empirically supported interventions for suicidal ideation and nonsuicidal self-injurious behaviors. The program closes with a review of key take-home points, an activity focused on helping participants translate training into practice, and a question and answer session.
In this presentation, Leah L. Graves, RDN, LDN, CEDRD-S, FAED, discusses how supporting individuals with eating disorders as they return to adequate growth and development is vital. This workshop helps professionals detect early growth changes in youth with eating disorders by highlighting strategies for resumption of normal growth and development through a transdisciplinary lens.
In this presentation, Hilmar Wagner, MPH, RDN, CD, LN, discusses how normalizing eating and restoring a healthy relationship with food and eating is a primary eating disorder treatment goal. It will draw on research into the neurobiology, psychology, environmental and nutritional impacts of eating disorders, as well as a decade of clinical experience to provide a range of techniques related to the normalization of eating with clinical examples of each. Areas to be covered include establishing meal patterns, teaching self-monitoring, the establishment of a regular meal and snack pattern, reducing restrictive eating, reintroducing challenging foods, and practicing mindful eating. The numerous impacts on eating, both internal and external will be discussed, with strategies for maintaining normalized eating.
In this presentation, Krista Crotty, LMFT, PsyD, discusses how diagnosing an eating disorder is not always easy. Due to the complex nature of eating disorders, assessment and diagnosis require special attention and training. This educational webinar will focus on the nuances of eating disorder assessment from the perspective of mental/behavioral health providers.
In this presentation, Dr. Jillian Lampert reviews eating disorder levels of care and why it’s important to be familiar with level of care options when working with clients who have or may have an eating disorder. Common questions regarding referral timing, presenting options to families, insurance coverage, and transition supports will be addressed to help equip providers and clinicians, particularly those in outpatient settings, with the tools they need to support their critical work.
In this session, presented by Amy Fogarty, DNP, RN, C-IAYT, and Becky Pike, MSW, LICSW, we explore why yoga is a supportive practice to integrate into eating disorder treatment.
