Training Description:

Eating disorders (EDs) are serious and difficult to treat psychiatric illnesses, which frequently co-occur with medical complications, psychiatric conditions, and ambivalence toward recovery. Early diagnosis and prompt intervention, based on a developmentally appropriate and evidence-based multidisciplinary team approach is the ideal standard of care.  However, if you are not an ED specialist, identifying and assessing the ED, deciding among the various treatments available, and knowing when you need to refer to a higher level of care can be overwhelming. The good news is that there is a vast literature to guide these decisions!  The emphasis throughout this workshop will be on integrating cutting edge research and evidence-based protocols into real-world clinical practice to help the general practitioner feel more confident in assessing and deciding to treat EDs.

This 3-hour-long workshop will provide an overview of how to identify and diagnose an ED in adults and adolescents, decide upon the appropriate level of care (outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospital, residential, and inpatient) and treatment approach based on diagnosis, case conceptualization, and available resources.  Special attention will be given to how to execute this effectively in clinical practice. Time will be spent reviewing cases and discussing the application of concepts.
