About the Course:

Webinar from the 2011 International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals Symposium.

Having worked exclusively with eating disorder patients for over 15 years, I have found this population to be extremely challenging and rewarding. My experience is that all of the patients I have worked with have many co-occurring conditions, in fact over 6 other diagnoses in addition to the identified eating disorder. Depression and Anxiety disorders-OCD-PTSD-Social Phobia are the primary, but a substantial number of individuals have substance abuse issues as well as Personality Disorders. After attending this presentation, you should have the ability to better manage these complex individuals.
