Why Awareness of Disordered Eating Is Important
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET
Necessary dietary restrictions to treat conditions such as digestive disorders, Type I diabetes and food allergies can increase the risk of disordered eating. Nutrient intake can become more restrictive due to fear of having a medical issue, uncertainty about what is in some foods, or trauma associated with certain foods or food situations. This presentation will help parents and professionals recognize signs and symptoms of disordered eating and understand what action should be taken. Methods involved in disordered eating prevention as well as courses of treatment will be discussed.
By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
- Identify signs and symptoms of disordered eating
- Understand what actions should be taken for disordered eating prevention and treatment
- Know when and how to react when disordered eating is suspected
