Eating Disorders and the Holidays (Webinar)
November 10, 2022
Thursday, November 10, 2022, 9:00am-11:00am (PT)
Hosted by Accanto Health. The holidays can be challenging for anyone, but especially for those who have an eating disorder or struggle with disordered eating. The focus on food and social interactions can worsen an individual’s psycho-emotional state and exacerbate disordered behaviors. In this presentation, we will review effective coping strategies and techniques for providing guidance and support to help clients navigate difficult situations, help sustain recovery efforts, and reduce distress. 2 CEUs are available.
- Identify three aspects of the holiday season that can trigger or worsen eating disorder symptoms and behaviors
- Describe at least two distress-tolerance techniques clients can learn to help manage triggering situations
- Integrate at least two methods of supporting clients during the holidays through such approaches as increasing structure/support network, pre-planning, relapse prevention and self-care
