From dieting to body image distortion, this clinical training provides background knowledge and trauma-informed skills in treating the spectrum of eating disorders (EDs). It stresses the importance of treating the trauma-based origins of EDs and dissociation, focusing on patterns of behavior, as well as phobias, typical of this population. This clinical approach utilizes interactive discussion, practica, and the use of case examples and videos to solidify learning.

This course is open to all mental health workers. No prerequisites required.
