CE2030 Interdisciplinary and Integrative Treatment of Eating Disorders

Course Description

Applicable Field: APA, BBS, RN

Credit Hours: 10

In order to treat eating disorders effectively, clinicians must understand the ways that different fields (such as nutrition, psychotherapy, primary care, alternative care, and psychiatry) overlap and interact to play important roles in the development, diagnosis and treatment process. Examining any of these areas in isolation can lead to improper and incomplete detection of key contributing factors, having an enormous impact on the physical, emotional, and cognitive health of individuals suffering from eating disorders, leaving them even more vulnerable. In this course, examine the necessity of an integrated, team approach to the treatment of eating disorders and learn how to develop team-focused care in private, group, and hospital settings. Resources for the Bay Area and beyond will also be provided.
