1. Compulsive Overeating: Up to one-third of the U.S. population is overweight, and there are a variety of factors that contribute to compulsive overeating: both behavioral and emotional. This workshop is designed to promote a multi-modal format for treating compulsive overeating. It presents some of the contributors to overeating, including biology, environment and psychology, all of which must be assessed and treated. Treatment models are presented to address the complexity of these contributors, and thus include group, individual, cognitive, emotional and 12-step modalities. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify symptoms of compulsive overeating.
  2. Correctly assess and diagnose a client coping with issues of compulsive overeating.
  3. Analyze the complexity of factors which contribute to overeating to best match a treatment plan for the individual client.
  4. Integrate a range of treatment modalities and referrals based upon the client's symptoms and clinical presentation.

2. Eating Disorders: In this presentation, we explore the formal diagnostic criteria and typical presenting symptoms of eating disorders, and delineate the differential diagnoses between eating disorders and other clinical syndromes. We identify the various mental health professionals who interact with this population, evaluate the appropriateness of different treatment settings, and set forth a variety of theoretical lenses and models (e.g., psychodynamic, systems, feminist, behavioral) that conceptualize assessment and treatment procedures. Also presented are treatment issues for special populations, including children, males, and clients for whom self-injury or suicide is present.
