Many clinicians do not plan to treat people with eating disorders, but it is still important to be able to recognize one and appropriately refer without engaging in behavior or conversations that inadvertently exacerbate eating disorders. Participants will learn about diet culture, wellness culture and eating disorder diagnoses with a focus on the ones that are typically missed: OSFED, ARFID and UFED. Participants will develop a basic understanding of how eating disorders serve as complex coping mechanisms. They will be able to use six specific questions to screen clients to determine when they have crossed the line from “diet/wellness culture” to disordered eating and full blown eating disorders. Participants will have the opportunity to identify their own biases and then develop an understanding of the ways in which society becomes hostile to recovery. Participants will have an understanding of the gold standard, Intuitive Eating, and best practice, Health At Every Size models, and learn language that does not exacerbate clients symptomatology. The workshop rounds out with learning about the levels of care and how to make a referral for further treatment.
