Caring for Adolescents and Young Adults with Disordered Eating: A Multidisciplinary Training (virtual)
Nationally and in Vermont, there are concerns about increasing eating problems and disorders among youth & young adults. The target audience for this training is primary care providers and related healthcare professionals (e.g. nurses, PAs), dietitians, mental health providers, and school health and mental health staff. The focus will be on using a multidisciplinary approach to caring for adolescents/young adults with disordered eating. Sessions will discuss effective practices of a multidisciplinary team; case conceptualization, assessment, and a brief overview of treatment approaches; exploring the power of language in prevention and recovery; and considering when and how to engage family in treatment. We will hear the stories of Vermont patients and families. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage with a panel of providers of multidisciplinary care and to connect with other professionals on this important topic. Presenters include the University of Vermont, UVM Medical Center’s Eating Disorder Consult Clinic & The Adams Center.
