Double Despair: Compassionate and Competent Treatment for Co-Occurring Eating Disorders and the Unresolved Trauma of Abuse

June 30, 2021, 9 - 10:30 am

It is no secret in the field of eating disorder treatment that there is a strong correlation between trauma and eating disorders. Just as abuse is prevalent in every community, and affects all people regardless of age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality, so it is with eating disorders; neither abuse nor eating disorders discriminate. When an eating disorder is entangled in the roots of abuse, the trauma resulting from the abuse needs to be treated, along with the eating disorder.

Eating Disorders During Pregnancy

and Postpartum

September 22, 2021, 9 - 10:30 am

Pregnancy and postpartum can be a minefield of triggers for women with a history of an eating disorder or who are susceptible to these mental illnesses. Untreated eating disorders during pregnancy and postpartum present significant risks to both a woman and her growing family. Health professionals who engage with this population have a unique opportunity to better support these individuals and families through increased awareness of risk factors and the ability to offer appropriate interventions for treatment.
