Two Day Training Workshop

Eating Disorders in Adolescence & Emerging Adulthood

Today’s adolescents are bombarded with shaming, unrealistic and confusing messages about weight, body shape and beauty. Bodies are machines to be managed and are a source of torture for many adolescents. This workshop will explore how the adolescent’s relationship to body and food is a creative statement about how they feel about themselves and their world. Participants will develop an understanding of eating disorders specific to adolescence including anorexia nervosa, adolescent anorectic profile, bulimia nervosa, selective/ restrictive eating, food refusal & food phobia.

We will examine various aspects of this complex issue including:

• The impact of eating disorders on adolescent development

• Eating disorders & adolescent brain development

• The adolescent’s subjective experience through an eating disorder

• Supporting the adolescent’s meaning-making process

• Supporting parents

• Multi-agency work

• Supporting the adolescent’s recovery

  • Parental Involvement
  • Countertransference & clinical dilemmas
