About the Course:This workshop will focus on childhood traits that may be been viewed as risk factors for the development of eating disorders (EDs), but may also facilitate positive outcomes with recovery. Recently, new information has emerged suggesting that people who develop EDs often have traits, such as perfectionism, and drive for achievement, in childhood. Importantly, there has also been recognition that when people recover from EDs, they often are very successful. The purpose of this workshop is to ask a number of people who are prominent in the ED field, and have had EDs, to discuss the traits they had in childhood that persisted after ED recovery, and have also helped them succeed in life. The primary presenter will provide an introduction (5 minutes), then the panel of recovered ED professionals co-presenters will present how they have transformed their ED characteristics (e.g., perfectionism, low risk-taking, hypervigilance, organization) into assets (total of 40 minutes). The workshop will conclude with a 45-minute group discussion about the implications for the de-stigmatization of EDs, and developing trait-based treatments, moderated by the primary presenter. This workshop will combine didactic and experiential methods, and continue to focus on integrating perspectives of those with lived ED experiences with empirical findings.
This course is based on the book, Eating Disorder Traits as Strengths in Recovery created by Walter H. Kaye, MD, FAED, Heather Hower, MSW, LICSW, ACSW, QCSW, Tamara Pryor, PhD, FAED, Jillian Lampert, PhD, MPH, RD, LD, FAED, and Chevese Turner, BA in 2020.
