On-Demand Eating Recovery Center Sessions for Eating Disorders

On-Demand Eating Disorder Session 1: Coming Home to Ourselves: Guiding the Return to Sexual Experiencing in Eating Disorder Recovery with Brittany Lacour, LCSW, DAACS and Landry Weatherston-Yarborough, LPC, CEDS-S, NCC

Most individuals with an eating disorder report at least one traumatic experience, usually sexual in nature. Even without a traumatic experience, Western culture rejects attunement with internal experiencing, leaving most of us disconnected from the messages of our bodies, therapists and practitioners included. Reconnect with your own physical sensations to better guide your eating disorder patients through the recovery process. Topics will include body image, interoceptive experiencing, and utilizing the body as a resource.

On-Demand Eating Disorder Session 2: Virtual Treatment for Eating Disorders: Expanding Access and Meeting Need with Deb Michel, PhD, CEDS-S, FAED and Casey Tallent, PhD

Virtual treatment options for eating disorder concerns have expanded significantly over the past two years. Dr. Casey Tallent, a pioneer in the virtual space and founder of the first empirically supported virtual intensive outpatient (IOP) program in the country, will be joined by leaders in the virtual treatment space to discuss how virtual treatment can be implemented to ethically increase access to eating disorder treatment. Learn how to implement virtual treatment with college students and athletes, the role of IOP in the treatment and recovery process, and how to partner with IOP programs’ outpatient providers to support your patients.

On-Demand Eating Disorder Session 3: Medical Nutrition Management for Eating Disorders Across Levels of Care with Jessica Barth Nesbitt, MA, RD, CD, CEDRD-S and Jennifer Vittitow, RD, LD, CEDRD-S

This presentation reviews the critical importance of having a dietitian as a member of a multidisciplinary team that treats eating disorders. The dietitian’s role of providing medical nutrition therapy across the continuum of care will be discussed along with the benefits that dietitians can provide to an individual’s recovery journey. A review of case studies and clinical examples will be shared to highlight a variety of interventions that dietitians can offer throughout the continuum of care to patients and their families. Tips for navigating common challenges that dietitians often face will also be offered.  

On-Demand Eating Disorder Session 4: Binge Eating Disorder Across Levels of Care: A Clinician’s Guide to Assessing Level of Care and Practical Interventions for the Outpatient Provider with Kate Barse, PsyD, Hannah Gruenewald, MS, RD, LD, and Allison Pritchett, RD, LD

Join Eating Recovery Center’s Binge Eating Treatment Team for an overview of binge eating disorder across levels of care. Explore issues related to binge eating, disinhibited eating, and associated disorders such as bulimia nervosa (BN) and other specified feeding or eating disorders (OSFED). Understand assessment of patient presentations and appropriate levels of care. Review interventions from each level of care and how an outpatient provider may utilize them.

On-Demand Eating Disorder Session 5: ARFID Treatment in Higher Levels of Care with Stephanie Setliff, MD, CEDS-S, Kathryn Johnson, MA, RD, LD, CEDRD-S, and Michelle Jones, PhD

Avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) is one of the newest eating disorder diagnoses, with its formal introduction arriving in the DSM-5 (2013). Treatment approaches for individuals diagnosed with ARFID are in early stages when compared to those commonly used for other eating disorder diagnoses, and interventions largely target individuals treated at an outpatient level of care. Review existing treatment interventions, examine how these interventions are adapted to higher level of care treatment settings from a multidisciplinary perspective, and address common roadblocks to effective ARFID treatment.
