This course provides information on the most recent developments in assessing, understanding, and treating binge eating disorder (BED) to help clinicians better identify and treat those with the disorder. This course will provide the most current information about BED, including material on the differential diagnosis of BED from related disorders, potential causes of BED, associated features of BED, negative health implications of BED, and pharmacological and psychological options for treating BED in various settings.
This basic-level course is designed for dietitians who may come into contact with individuals exhibiting BED. The course is relevant for clinicians in various treatment settings, including outpatient, inpatient, medical, psychiatric, and community-based care settings. Because this course assumes no prior knowledge about BED, it is an appropriate and useful learning opportunity for professionals who are interested in entering this area of practice.
