First, Do No Harm: Essential Considerations in the Treatment of BED
Chevese Turner and Amy Pershing, LMSW, ACSW
Most common of all the eating disorders, Binge Eating Disorder (BED) presents a unique set of challenges in the therapeutic milieu. If not addressed skillfully and directly, these challenges make sustained recovery elusive. This talk will provide a brief overview of the etiology and current research on BED, as well as address critical underpinnings for successful treatment. Essential for working with BED, the impact of trauma, weight stigma, and the importance of a strengths-based perspective will be outlined.
