A unique workshop that combines clinical wisdom with a patient’s perspective to discuss symptoms, risk factors, and tools for recovery.

Speakers: Jenni Schaefer and Amanda Fialk, PhD, LCSW, LICSW

The COVID‐19 pandemic has created a national concern about an increase in eating disorders (ED) and disordered eating as well as barriers to care. The disruptions to daily routines, including limited access to support, workout facilities, and even food choices may have increased concerns about weight and shape; negatively impacting eating, exercise, relationships, and/or sleeping patterns. Within young adult populations, elevated rates of stress due to the pandemic and social isolation may have contributed to increasing risk for eating disorders and disordered eating. This unique workshop, combining clinical wisdom with a patient’s personal story, will discuss symptoms, risk factors, tools for recovery, and other things you need to know about eating disorders.

Learning Objectives
  • Explain the difference between “Eating disorders” vs. “Disordered eating.”
  • Identify 2-3 diagnoses that intersect with the symptoms of eating disorders (example: autism, PTSD/trauma, OCD, transdiagnostic clients).
  • Demonstrate effective use of language for assessing eating disorders.
