Eating Disorders are misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and often just missed by both mental health and medical providers. Only 1/3 of those suffering from eating disorders are treated by a mental health professional. This unfortunate statistic means many suffer in silence and experience chronic distress when relief is possible.
In this class, you will learn to accurately define of the spectrum of eating disorders through the most recent diagnostic categories, from Avoidant Restrictive Eating Disorder through Binge Eating Disorder. You will also be introduced to effective, evidence-based treatments, specifically Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Family Based Treatment, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and their specific application to eating disorders. Theory, research base, practical application and case studies will be discussed. Interactive case studies, treatment planning, role plays and demonstrations will be incorporated to ensure the material can immediately be put in to use in practice settings.

This class will include both practicing professionals and graduate students taking the class for academic credit.

General Admission: $350

Class size is limited to 30.

Due to the current global health situation, Washington University’s policies regarding visitors on campus and our department’s policies regarding cancelations have changed.

Washington University interim policy on visitors

Whether or not they are exhibiting symptoms, visitors who have been in locations with an elevated risk of COVID-19 exposure within the past 14 days are not allowed to visit campus or attend university events. In addition, visitors who have had direct contact with a patient confirmed to have COVID-19 or with someone who is under care for suspected exposure to COVID-19 are not allowed to visit campus or attend university events within 14 days of such contact.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this poses to your plans to visit. To learn more about the university’s response to COVID-19, visit our information page.

Professional Development policy on registration cancelations

In addition to the above policy, Brown School Prof Dev is relaxing our standard policies regarding canceling your registration to attend a class. If you are ill with fever, cold, or flu-like symptoms, please stay home until you are well and have been fever free for 48 hours. Likewise, if you are symptom-free but are not allowed to visit campus due to exposure as described in the visitors policy above, please stay home.  Anyone who lets us know they are ill or may have had an exposure will be given a credit on their account to apply to a different class (including our online offerings) held within the next 6 months.
