Eating Disorders in Sport: Relationship with Exercise presented by Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS

This webinar will begin by summarizing the research regarding qualitative aspects of exercise that are associated with increased disordered eating attitudes and behaviors. The presenter will take what we’ve learned from research and practically apply it to eating disordered clients, providing specific treatment targets and interventions. The application will also address particularities in treating the sub-population of athlete-identified clients.
