Eating Disorders in Persons with Higher Weights: Identification & Treatment - ZOOM Seminar
Individuals with higher weights and comorbid eating disorders experience significant physical and mental health concerns that are much greater that those who only have one of these conditions. Disordered eating that most commonly occurs in this population includes binge eating and night eating, but it can also include bulimia nervosa and atypical anorexia nervosa. Individuals with these issues often feel shame disclosing these issues due to fear of judgement and weight bias. This 4-hour ZOOM seminar will discuss how to identify and diagnose disordered eating, the psychiatric comorbidities commonly presented in individuals with higher weights, and how to apply cognitive behavior therapy principles to treat these conditions.

This seminar will be via ZOOM. The link and directions to join the seminar will be emailed to registrants the week of the seminar.
