About the Course:
Eating disorders are predominantly characterized by disturbances in eating behavior. The development of eating disturbances is influenced in part by individual factors, such as body shape and weight concerns, temperament, and biology. Emerging research in public health and community settings also suggests that external factors, including the food environment, sociocultural pressures, and socioeconomic factors can disrupt self-regulation of eating and contribute to the development of eating problems. However, it is unclear how these insights from public health and community perspectives can contribute to the understanding of clinical disordered eating behaviors or can inform treatment approaches to improving eating behaviors. This plenary will examine external influences on disordered eating and critically appraise their application to clinical settings and eating disorder intervention.
This course is based on the book, Wildcard Plenary: How Well are We Doing with the Eating in Eating Disorders? Influences on Food Choice and Eating Behaviour created by Rachel Rodgers, PhD, FAED, Danielle Gallegos, Tracy Tylka, PhD, FAED, and Carolyn Becker, PhD, FAED in 2020.
