Workshop Description

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

Eating disorders can range from problematic tendencies like excessive dieting to a mental health diagnosis such as anorexia or bulimia. Helpers may struggle with knowing how to best respond to this complex issue and may react with frustration, fear, or helplessness. This workshop examines the symptoms, contributing factors, and the experience of living with an eating disorder. Participants will be challenged to check their assumptions and to fully address the function disordered eating plays in a person’s life. The focus of the training then shifts to possible treatment options and practical strategies for supporting individuals struggling with disordered eating.
