Feeding and Eating Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment

Feeding and Eating Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment 

Feeding and eating disorders are among the most common psychiatric problems, affecting countless women and men. Unfortunately, feeding and eating disorders are often difficult to diagnose, and more than half of all cases go undetected. This is particularly concerning given that these disorders are associated with severe medical and psychological consequences including death, osteoporosis, and growth and developmental delays. This course will provide you the tools you need to recognize, accurately diagnose, and effectively treat feeding and eating disorders in the individuals you serve. In this course, you will learn about the different types of feeding and eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder. After reviewing the specific diagnostic criteria for each of these disorders, you will learn how to reliably assess for risk factors and warning signs of these disorders to assist you in prompt recognition and early detection. The course teaches you how to formulate treatment goals appropriate for your work setting, as well as current best practices for the treatment of these disorders. This training is designed for a variety of licensed clinicians who work with individuals suffering from eating disorders. As you navigate through this course, you will continuously apply your new foundational knowledge using a series of experiential lessons and interactive exercises to help you practice what you have learned.
