Eating Disorders: Novel conceptions & learnings from the custodial setting

Wed, 26 Jun 2024
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This presentation will cover:

  • General overview of DSV-V eating disorder diagnoses including ARFID, OSFED, bigorexia/muscle dysmorphia, and custody-specific considerations
  • How to identify and support your patients who have eating disorders symptoms (and how/why you might not have noticed until now)
  • A novel way to understand ED presentations, development and treatments – examples from custody that just make sense.
  • Overview of eating disorder treatment guidelines as per evidence-based practice, what these treatments have in common, and adaptation for use in custodial setting.
  • How to use these learnings to incorporate common features of effective treatment into your practice to overcome common treatment obstacles
