Disordered eating can range from food and body preoccupation to a mental health diagnosis such as anorexia, bulimia or binge-eating disorder. Caregivers and helping professionals may struggle with knowing how to best respond to this complex issue. Beginning with a general overview, this webinar will examine the eating and body image continuum, eating disorder diagnostic criteria, contributing factors and the functions of disordered eating. The focus will then shift to practical strategies in regards to normalizing eating, body image, coping, cognitive work and managing setbacks.
