Treating Disordered Eating Symptoms with Co-Occurring Disorders

Join this workshop with Dr. Cris Haltom to enrich your clinical practice in working with clients who struggle with disordered eating

Date: Friday, December 8
Time: 12 – 2pm EST
Duration: 2 Hours    Format: Online

This workshop aims to address the complex relationship between eating disorders, both clinical and sub-clinical, and other mental health conditions. Combining efforts to reduce or eliminate eating disorder behaviors while considering the broader mental health context can be crucial for effective and integrative care. This workshop will focus on assessing and treating common, transdiagnostic eating disorder signs and symptoms in the context of the most frequent co-occurring mental health disorders. It aims to overview three treatment approaches that integrate addressing eating disorder behaviors and related cognitions within the context of other mental disorders. This approach is in line with the understanding that eating disorders and disordered eating behaviors often exist alongside other psychiatric conditions, and effective treatment often requires an integrated approach.

This workshop will provide 2 CEU credits to LMSWs, LCSWs, LMFTs, LMHCs and psychologists licensed in New York State.
