Description

Eating disorders are complex disorders that affect nearly all domains of functioning and pose an increased risk for serious medical complications and suicide. Standard treatment plans for eating disorders include a combination of psychotherapy, medical care and monitoring, nutritional counseling, and psychotropic medications -- resulting in the necessity for clinicians to possess a high level of specialized and cross-disciplinary knowledge.  As such, these complex disorders require additional considerations when it comes to providing clinical supervision and consultation. This webinar will examine the ethical and practical considerations for supervising clinicians treating eating disorders including how to assess client risk and level of care appropriateness, how to assess clinician competency, and how to access the training resources necessary to provide ethical and effective care. 

Course Availability

From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.
