But I Really Was Overweight: Understanding Treatment Implications for Eating Disorder Patients with a Premorbid Overweight History presented by Sonia Schwalen, PhD, NCSP, LSSP.

This talk will help audience members to understand differences in clients who present with a history of moving along the spectrum of eating disorders. It will also outline different approaches in treatment that are critical to incorporate when working with this population in treatment centers, at school, and even at home. This is important today, due the prevalence rates of Binge Eating Disorder/Atypical Anorexia in both men and women, and the increasing pathogenic dieting behaviors that have emerged in western cultures. It is also important for professionals across settings to be aware of this topic as they are well-positioned to impact individuals struggling with eating disorders. Implications for treatment will be discussed in to help audience members integrate research into practice and to help professionals across settings link systems of care for their clients/students/loved ones.
