Culturally Competent Care for Eating Disorders in Diverse Populations

Though eating disorders affect people from various ethnic/racial backgrounds, current evidence-based treatments (EBTs) for eating disorders (e.g., Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Family-Based Treatment) have been primarily validated in samples of Caucasian, young adult women. Culture, context, and language are essential considerations for culturally competent care. The demographic population of the United States has been shifting for the last several years and within 20 years, it is expected that the country will become a majority-minority nation.

Children may develop feeding difficulties due to food allergic reactions while parental anxiety may prevent the introduction of new foods to a child. Feeding a child with food allergy can be joyful with minimal stress when parents and children trust each other. Implementing Satter’s Division of Responsibility can help a family reduce their stress over feeding while learning to trust their child’s instincts on food. In this webinar, parents will learn how to apply the Division of Responsibility while also safely managing food allergy.

Eating disorders don’t develop in a vacuum. They develop over the course of months and years, and are influenced by early childhood feeding practices that are common in today’s society.

Join Dr. Harris as she uses research evidence and videos, and will demonstrate how and why it is crucially important to understand clients’ lived experience in regard to the feeding relationship when in recovery from an eating disorder, so that practitioners are better-equipped to treat this challenging client population.

Pride and Joy: Positive Emotions and the Treatment of Eating Disorders

This webinar will explore the clinical utility of positive emotions in the treatment of eating disorders.  We will present Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), with its focus on privileging positive experiences of affect and connection, in the treatment of eating disorders.  The presenters will use video-recordings of therapy sessions to demonstrate the unfolding of the AEDP therapy process.  Specifically, we will focus on the emotional sequelae of experiencing positive emotion in AEDP therapy as it pertains to eating disorder recovery.
