About the Course:

Young athletes are often at greater risk for developing eating disorders than their non-sport counterparts. Nonetheless, relatively few clinicians, parents, coaches or other stakeholders feel adequately equipped with the necessary skills for effective early intervention efforts. The primary aim of this practical and interactive workshop is to collectively identify strategies for increasing the development and implementation of evidence-based approaches to reducing eating disorder risk factors, and ultimately preventing these disorders among young athletes. The combined expertise of its presenters will serve as a springboard for the interactive workshop. A brief review of empirically supported interventions currently in use with athletes will be shared, along with results from recent intervention trials with collegiate athletes and elite young dancers. Special attention will be paid to highlighting common pitfalls in conducting this work. Presenters will then guide discussion around these ‘lessons learned’ with an interactive forum. Participants will be able to 1) discuss their own challenges encountered when working within sporting culture and 2) generate ideas for future avenues in effective eating disorder prevention and risk factor reduction within athletics. Participants can expect to both thoroughly understand obstacles faced, as well as to help generate ideas that can be used to advance future clinical and research endeavors.

This course is based on the book, Addressing Eating Disorder Risk in Athletes: Establishing prevention strategies & early intervention pathways in the sports setting created by Sasha Gorrell, PhD, Shane Jeffrey, Grad Dip Nutr & Diet, and Fiona Sutherland, MSc (Nut & Diet), APD, RYT in 2020.
