Friday October 8, 2021
1:00pm - 4:30pm
Presented by Alison R. Allen, MSW, LCSW, LCAS, CCS, CEDS-S
NCASPPB approved 3 credit hours -- Substance Use Specific (SS), Evidence Based Treatment (EBT)
Do you currently specialize in the treatment of substance use disorders? When asked if you treat eating disorders do you say “nope”! While this is the ethical answer, because it is currently outside your scope of practice- this presenter wants to encourage you to push your limits and consider increasing your competencies in Disordered Eating.
This live, interactive webinar is an overview of screening, assessing, diagnosing, assessing for level of care, and treating of Eating Disorders. There are so many similarities in these two disorders and yet sometimes providers are resistant to letting the treatment of EDs and SUDs collide! It is important that providers who specialize in the treatment of eating disorders are also knowledgeable about co-occurring substance use disorders and visa versa. This presentation will help you learn about the prevalence of this co-occurrence and similarities in clinical features.
Finally, the presenter will teach participants about the DBT Distress Tolerance skills for when the Crisis is Addiction. Typically, these skills are taught in programs where participants in the group have serious addictions and these skills can be applicable with clients with eating disorders as well.
- To review current data on prevalence of alcohol and drug use for clients with eating disorders.
- Review three Screening Tools for Eating Disorders.
- To review DSM-V Criteria for Eating Disorders
- To learn how to complete a comprehensive assessment and level of care placement using the APA Criteria.
- To learn the Seven DBT Distress Tolerance Skills for helping clients learn to “back down from Addiction”.
We look forward to seeing you there!!
