“Outpatient Treatment for Eating Disorders &
Considerations When Working with the Latine Community“
October 27th, 2023 from 12:00-1:30 PM EST
Presented by Chantal Gil, Psy.D.
All our monthly webinars on Latine mental health are free!
It can be really challenging for clients to find eating disorder treatment. Many barriers have been identified: Wait lists at specialty clinics, financial and insurance concerns, and sometimes clinicians feeling intimidated or unequipped to work with individuals with disordered eating. There is a significant need for more providers to be acquainted with the evaluation and treatment of individuals with eating concerns.
In this webinar, attendees will (1) learn the difference between healthy eating vs. disordered eating, (2) understand how to identify appropriate treatment options depending on severity, and (3) review how to use evidence-based treatment for eating disorders: Enhanced Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT-E). This webinar will include special considerations when working with eating disorders in the Latine community.
