Renfrew Professional Webinar: Being Different Makes a Difference: Eating Disorders Among Diverse Populations

July 29 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Details: Professional Seminar Presented by Paula Edwards-Gayfield, LPCS, CEDS – Assistant Vice President, The Renfrew Center and Robia Smith-Herman, LCSW – Team Leader, The Renfrew Center of Radnor

The lack of information regarding diverse populations (i.e. age, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, gender identity, disability status) has overwhelmingly affected eating disorders education and treatment.

This webinar will identify symptoms of eating disorders using DSM-V criteria and assessment tools (i.e. comprehensive assessments, family dynamics, consultation with professionals). Current eating disorders research will be reviewed and discussed, and media and literature will be used to highlight symptom presentation within this population. Attendees will explore how to create inclusive environments for diverse populations and identify effective treatments. Biases within the professional community and their impact on recognition, diagnosis and treatment of diverse individuals with eating disorders will be discussed.

Location: Online
Time:  12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
