Eating disorders (EDs) are often misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and just missed. EDs have a specific timeline and window of opportunity for a quicker recovery. By the time a diagnosis is made, the clock has already started. This workshop will provide you with guidelines to correctly identify EDs in your clients and a language to embrace and engage parents in the process of recovery. 

Participants will gain a better understanding of the spectrum of eating-related issues that affect children and adolescents, from picky eating to Binge Eating Disorder. We will discuss what signs and symptoms to expect in the early stages of ED development, and through the progression of the illness. This includes the internal experience of your client as well as the observable, external signs and behaviors. Interactive case scenarios and an introduction to medical complications and management will be discussed, as well as what to look for as a mental health provider.

Class size is limited to 40.
