Eating disorders are the deadliest of all mental health illnesses. And yet, many eating disorders go untreated while HIDING in a therapist’s office. Eating disorders often co-occur with anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance use. People are motivated to feel better—so they will seek treatment for those co-occurring disorders while hiding their eating disorder behaviors from their therapist. This course will bust the myths you’ve heard about eating disorders. We will uncover the hidden symptoms, dive into the neurobiology of the illness, and have an in-depth discussion of the complex role of relationships in eating disorders. Relationships can feed an eating disorder, relationships can be destroyed by an eating disorder, and relationships can be the key to recovery. Join us and learn how to integrate your patients’ families and support persons into treatment and use the power of relationships.
