Eating Disorders, Addiction & Substance Use Disorders (Webinar)
January 9, 2023
Monday, January 9, 2023, 9:00am-1:00pm (PT)
Hosted by the Integrative Trauma Treatment Academy. Eating disorders often get put in the “addiction” category in both educational texts and in our society at large, however, there are important factors that differentiate the two. This course will help participants understand these important differences, and challenge the idea that food is addictive. Participants will also gain an understanding of challenges and best practices in treating these disorders when they co-occur, and how to approach treatment when a higher level of care is necessary. 4 CEUs are available.
Participants will be able to:
- Differentiate food from addiction
- Identify the similarities and differences between eating disorders and substance use disorders
- Understand complexities and best practices in treating co-occurring eating disorders and substance use disorders
- Recognize when a higher level of care is necessary and understand how to use a higher level of care support
