What's Eating You? What Science Tells Us About Food and Weight Issues

 

Preferred registration deadline: August 25th

3 CEUs

Nancy Ellis-Ordway, PhD, MSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Private Practice

In social work practice, we often encounter clients who are struggling with body image, nutrition and weight concerns. What can we learn from research and clinical experience, and how do we sort truth from marketing?

This workshop will review the criteria for diagnosable eating disorders and examine the relationship between body image, self-esteem, and quality of life. We will discuss cultural influences that can contribute to disturbances in eating and challenges with body image. Effective treatment approaches will be reviewed.

Class size is limited to 40.
