Event Date




Event Time

Start Time

9:00 am


Led by Tara Deliberto, PhD, a world-renowned clinical psychologist and specialist in the treatment of eating disorders, health care professionals – across disciplines – will learn how to both identify and treat eating disorders. Because therapists almost never receive adequate training in the identification and treatment of eating disorders, these cases are often overlooked in practice. Considering eating disorders are the second deadliest mental illness after only substance abuse, it is imperative that as a field we begin meeting the treatment needs of these patients. Mental health professionals will also learn how to compassionately identify and treat eating disorders, as well as body image concerns using evidence-based methods.
