From Eating Disorder to Eating Recovery: How to recognize problematic eating in clients

 

Clinicians will learn the DSM-V criteria of diagnosing the primary eating disorder diagnoses most commonly seen in practice settings. The lecture will provide clinicians with a basic working knowledge of recognizing early warnings signs of an eating disorder in adolescents as well as symptoms commonly presented in adulthood. Practice considerations will also be discussed such as scope of practice and competency for clinicians, appropriate referrals to address the needs of clients with problematic eating behaviors, as well as community resources available in our local area.
