Eating Disorders: Highlights and Relevant Clinical Issues

ID: 5206

In contrast to traditional treatment that views eating disorders as the problem, an atypical approach is taken in this workshop. Specifically, eating disorder (ED) and disordered eating behaviors (DEB) often begin as (misguided) attempts to handle or in some cases survive overwhelming emotional situations, including childhood abuse and trauma. As you might suspect, this perspective requires not only a shift in understanding, but also innovative and more relevant treatment strategies. Emerging research is presented together with recent findings about the significant roles of self-criticism and unresolved anger. Assessment tools are provided along with untraditional treatment strategies that clinicians may find especially relevant for adult female clients.
