Presenter: Barbara K. McBroom, LMFT; in private practice.
Course Description: This course will provide an overview of current understanding and treatment of eating disorders. All therapists should know enough to recognize eating disorder symptoms and know when and how to refer to other care. Eating disorders have the highest death rate of any mental health diagnosis, and appropriate treatment is vital. Most therapists have not received the education to treat eating disorders, as special training is needed. We will review the ways to detect a potential eating disorder, how to assess further, basic treatment strategies, and when/where to refer. Barbara K. McBroom, LMFT has worked with eating disorders for 20 years, and has a Continuing Education Certificate in Eating Disorders from John F. Kennedy University, and is a member of the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals Foundation (iadep).
Educational Objective: This course will provide a basic understanding of eating disorders to enable therapists to detect, assess, understand the treatment process, and refer when necessary.
· Be able to list 5 common eating disorder symptoms.
· Know the 8 DSM-5 eating disorder diagnoses.
· Have a better understanding of the etiology of eating disorders.
