Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating: Examining Clinical Language & Deconstructing Pathology-Based Lenses in the Therapy Room

ID: 5366WEB

This course examines the clinical lens of eating disorders and treatment, including the language and conceptualizations of the current categories of eating disorders as seen in the DSM. Participants will critically examine the language used to categorize disordered eating, taking into account missing variables that contribute to one’s individual relationship with food, including sociocultural oppressive forces within the food industry, food policy, and food marketing. Special attention will be paid to developing a non-pathology-based therapeutic lens when working with individuals struggling with their relationship with food. In the latter part of the course.
