Free NAADAC Webinar
Wednesday, March 13, 2019 @ 3-4:30pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
Most counselors are familiar with – or at least heard of – eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia nervosa. But we are less familiar with binge eating disorder (BED) despite being four times more common in clinical practice. The American Psychiatric Association only recognized BED as a distinct disorder in 2013 and was first included in the DSM-5 (F50.8). This webinar will explore the prevalence, neurobiology, and evidence-based treatments for this common, and extremely challenging disorder. We will pay particular attention to the influence of developmental trauma from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study on the etiology of BED, and the utility of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as part of the treatment regimen.
- Enumerate 3 diagnostic distinctions between bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder and explain concisely the etiology and neurobiology of BED and implications for treatment.
- Describe 3 ways in which ACEs may predispose patients to developing BED.
- Verbalize at least 2 evidence-based options for treatment and be able to apply them with screening instruments and handouts provided.
