Eating disorders, especially anorexia, have the highest morbidity rates of all mental illnesses. It is vital that professionals are trained to the highest caliber as possible. These classes are designed to teach professionals in the community the intricacies of working with eating disorders. From the initial contact, first meeting, to the working team, this group of patients has a unique set of problems that frequently confuse and inhibit the professional. We will cover symptoms, strategies, consideration for treatment and medical, nutritional aspects. The use of a treatment team along with family of origin will be stressed.

This series of seminars is open to professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge of eating disorders.

Payment must be received by April 27th. Your payment is your reservation. Pay online or call 845-354-2121 ext.140 to pay by phone.
