Evidence-Based Treatment and Eating Disorders: A General Practitioner's Guide
The Academy for Eating Disorders (AED) is excited to present a five-week webinar series titled, Evidence-Based Treatment and Eating Disorders: A General Practitioner's Guide with Lucene Wisniewski, PhD, FAED.
Eating disorders (EDs) are serious and difficult to treat psychiatric illnesses which frequently co-occur with medical complications, psychiatric conditions, and ambivalence toward recovery. Early diagnosis and prompt intervention, based on a developmentally appropriate and evidence-based multidisciplinary team approach is the ideal standard of care. However, if you are not an ED specialist, identifying and assessing the ED, deciding among the various treatments available and knowing when you need to refer to a higher level of care can be overwhelming. The good news is that there is a vast literature to guide these decisions! The emphasis throughout this workshop will be on integrating cutting edge research and evidence-based protocols into real-world clinical practice to help the general practitioner feel more confident treating EDs.
The webinar series will begin Tuesday, October 8, 2019 and run weekly through Tuesday, November 5, 2019. If you can't attend any session live, don't worry! You'll have access to view any recorded session, at any time, at your own pace!
At the end of this series, each attendee should walk away with these key learning objectives:
1. Diagnose and assess a client with an eating disorder
2. Identify factors involved in evaluating the need for a higher level of care
3. Articulate the evidence-based treatments for ED clients
4. Evaluate if treatment is successful
5. Identify how to assemble a multidisciplinary treatment team
