About this Event

Topic: What Families Need to Know About Eating Disorders

We will explore the underlying functions of clients’ Eating Disorders, as well as how neurobiology, traits and temperament allow for vulnerability to such maladaptive coping. Understanding of familial influences and managing caregiver responses to the eating disorder will also be addressed. Awareness of these factors are critical in understanding how to approach care.

As a result of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

– Describe two goals for the treatment of eating disorders.

– List two ways in which traits, temperament, and vulnerability may impact the development of an eating disorder.

– Describe two strategies for treating eating disorders from the perspective of the bio-psycho-social model.
