Webinar Description

Presenter: Tara Arnold, PhD

Living in today’s diet culture, it can be beyond challenging to determine the difference in eating disorders and disordered eating. In this presentation, we will explore the definitions of eating disorders, including the newest feeding and eating disorders described in the DSM-5 and discuss their current clinical presentation in our culture. We will look at diagnostic criteria as well as informal patterns of eating disorders and how they show up clinically. Then, we will dive deeply into assessment of eating disorders to help ensure these deadly diseases are detected and treated with highly specialized care.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will identify the diagnosis of eating disorders and how to distinguish between the various types.

  • Participants will be able to assess for eating disorders.
