Binge Eating Disorder (BED) has long been prevalent in our clients’ lives, but has only been recognized by the DSM-5 since 2013. The result has been limited research on BED compared to many other eating disorders.
This presentation will include a general overview of BED, specific focus on research related to treatment outcomes and an enhanced clinical understanding based on the findings of EDCare’s Binge Eating Disorder specific treatment curriculum.
Dr. Neumann will discuss effective interventions in BED treatment, as well as identifying areas for increased focus. Join us as Dr. Neumann shares what has been learned from this under-served eating disorder subtype. See what the patients and data tell us about the long-term effect of this CBT-E based program.
- Participants will be able to recognize the terminology, clinical presentation, and conceptualization of Binge Eating Disorder.
- Participants will be able to explain the treatment nuances of a specialized binge eating disorder program.
- Participants will be able to describe the relationship between obesity and binge eating disorder.
- Participants will discuss the current HAES® movement, myths addressed by the HAES® philosophy, and ongoing advocacy work needed by all clinicians in the field.
