Eating Disorders are misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and often just missed by both mental health and medical providers. Only 1/3 of those suffering from eating disorders are treated by a mental health professional. This unfortunate statistic means many suffer in silence and experience chronic distress when relief is possible.
In this class, you will learn to accurately define of the spectrum of eating disorders through the most recent diagnostic categories, from Avoidant Restrictive Eating Disorder through Binge Eating Disorder. You will also be introduced to effective, evidence-based treatments, specifically Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Family Based Treatment, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and their specific application to eating disorders. Theory, research base, practical application and case studies will be discussed. Interactive case studies, treatment planning, role plays and demonstrations will be incorporated to ensure the material can immediately be put in to use in practice settings.
This class will include both practicing professionals and graduate students taking the class for academic credit.
