Holding Both: Supporting Providers who Treat and Struggle with Eating Disorders

Date: Thursday, November 17, 2022

Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm (EST)

Aaron Flores, RDN & Rachel Millner, PsyD, CEDS-S, CBTP(R)

There is something unspoken in our community, providers working with eating disorders are often themselves actively struggling with the same issues. Stigma, shame, and fear of repercussions means these folks struggle alone and in silence.  This talk will examine why that is, the shame that clinicians experience and how we can start to support them in their own healing.

Jaclyn Macchione, MOT, OTR/L & Kayla Wilson, MS, RDN, LDN

This workshop will explore the presentation and assessment of ARFID. Participants will gain insight into the treatment of ARFID patients in residential and non-residential settings.  Case examples of ARFID will be reviewed with an emphasis on the application of evidence-based treatment interventions.
