The most common kinds of eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. Eating and food issues occur most often in adolescents, but affect many different individuals in the United States and often go untreated. Left untreated, eating and food issues can have a devastating impact on one’s body. They can lead to anemia, damage to the heart, a damaged esophagus, chronic acid reflux, and much more.

Disordered eating does not stem from one particular cause or reason, varying greatly among clients. Therapists of all varieties must be prepared to address the eating and food issues when they surface. Continuing education for therapists on this topic makes it possible for you to effectively identify related patterns and help your client receive prompt treatment for their issues.

GoodTherapy offers continuing education for therapists on eating and food issues. These courses include topics like identifying and treating eating disorders and comorbidity, a comprehensive approach to treating co-occurring disorders, effective approaches for the treatment for eating disorders, and more. Depending on the state you are currently practicing in, continuing education for therapists and social workers may be necessary to meet licensing requirements.

Eating and food issues are brought on by a variety of stressors and anxieties that do not cover one particular type of client. Continuing education for therapists can prepare you to not only help your client toward recovery, but know how to identify symptoms when they start to show up.
