CEED WORKSHOP: WORKING WITH THE BODY IMAGE CONCERNS OF YOUNG PEOPLE EXPERIENCING EATING DISORDERS
OVERVIEW OF THE WORKSHOP
CEED are pleased to present an interactive workshop for clinicians around enhancing skills for working with the body image concerns of young people experiencing eating disorders. Concerns about weight and shape are common within the community, and across mental health diagnoses. In eating disorders, body image is often fundamental to the maintenance of the eating problem, personal distress for the individual, and a significant predictor of relapse. Despite this, interventions to assist young people with their body image problems remain relatively poorly understood and implemented in practice. The workshop will cover assessment and formulation of body image problems, and both individual and family-based interventions.
This workshop will assist clinicians to:
- Consider the role of body image as a maintaining factor for an eating problem within a case formulation
- Understand the rationale for both individual and family-based strategies aimed at addressing body image
- Be positioned to appropriately target and implement individual and family-based body image interventions to assist young people to create a more accepting and balanced relationship with their body, and move toward recovery
Target Audience: Health professionals working with young people experiencing body image concerns and eating disorders. Priority will be given to Victorian public mental health clinicians & Eating Disorder Coordinators.
