Through grounding this conversation in an intersectional framework, principles of harm reduction, and exploring case material, we will address eating disorder treatment in primary care settings and outpatient behavioral health settings. Providers will learn basic skills to increase overall comfort in identifying potential red flags, thorough assessment of risk factors, and navigating conversations with t/nb/gnc patients related to food, weight, and body image. We will prioritize strategies for supporting patient’s agency while also understanding the health risks of disordered eating.
1) Learn foundational knowledge about eating disorder treatment to be able to identifying potential red flags and be able to navigate conversations with trans/non binary/gender non-conforming patients related to food, weight, and body image. 2) Understand how to keep a patient’s healthy self-determination central to treatment while also challenging harmful eating patterns through supporting the agency of our trans/non-binary/gender non-conforming patients while understanding the health risks that come with disordered eating.
