[Online] Treatment of Negative Body Image

Date: 9:00am - 5:30pm PDT July 11 Location: Online


This course will offer an in-depth overview of the causal and maintenance factors involved in the development of clinically significant negative body image.

Participants will explore how it presents in different populations and over the lifespan, as well as effective approaches to treatment—whether the negative body image concern stems from an eating disorder or body dysmophic disorder.

Evidence-based treatment strategies to help clients make peace with their bodies will also be discussed.

This course is part of our Eating Disorders Certificate Program.  

Please Note: All Eating Disorders courses will be offered online during the summer of 2020. Should the stay at home order be lifted during the course of these classes, instructors may opt to add optional in-person meetings to enhance learning. These meetings, should they occur, will offer additional learning opportunities during regularly scheduled course times and every effort will be made to allow virtual attendance. The ability to attend in-person meetings will not affect a student’s ability to successfully complete a course.

Registration for this class will close one week prior to start date.
