Multidisciplinary Collaboration: Understanding Nutritional, Medical and Psychiatric Aspects of Treating Eating Disorders is one course of the 4-course Eating Disorder Training Certificate Program (EDTC).  For more information on the EDTC and discounted enrollment in the full program, please visit this page.

Eating disorders are not only complex in their etiology, but they can also cause numerous nutritional, medical and psychiatric complications. Individuals with any type of eating disorder and at any body size can experience malnutrition or negative health consequences associated with altered nutrition. Individuals with any type of eating disorder can suffer from acute or chronic medical complications as a direct result of engaging in eating disorder symptoms. Additionally, individuals with eating disorders have a high rate of comorbidity with other serious mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use and autism spectrum conditions. For these reasons, it is critical for all individuals with diagnosed eating disorders to have access to a multidisciplinary team that includes not only mental health clinicians, but also registered dietitians, medical and psychiatric practitioners.

This course provides mental health clinicians with an overview of the common nutritional, medical and psychiatric concerns that arise when treating individuals with eating disorders. Some of the ongoing challenges and controversies regarding best practices within the field of eating disorders are explored. Strategies for minimizing risk and collaborating with providers across disciplines are discussed, as well as ways to navigate concerns around differences in treatment philosophy, treatment planning and interventions. Resources for identifying qualified nutrition, medical and psychiatric professionals to work with clients with eating disorders are provided.
