This training is designed for the new and experienced therapists in agency, private practice, and school settings who are interested in learning about eating disorders, weight stigma impact on care, and best practices in evidence-based treatment. We will cover the impact of “diet culture;” the etiology, signs, symptoms, assessment tools, and diagnostic criteria of eating disorders; explore how our personal body narratives and views of weight impact the counseling space; and how to apply this knowledge to conceptualization and best practices in treatment. Presenters will use a variety of instructional methods including lecture, PowerPoint, group discussions, and experiential exercises.

6. Participants will learn how to identify signs and symptoms of disordered eating and eating disorders

7. Participants will gain exposure to various assessment tools which can be utilized for diagnosis and case conceptualization

8. Participants will apply didactic knowledge to functional analysis, conceptualization and incorporation of theory in treatment
