Treatment Strategies for Eating Disorders with Comorbid OCD

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Studies suggest that approximately 65% of those with eating disorders also have an anxiety disorder of some kind. When managing both an eating disorder and OCD, treatment and recovery can be extremely difficult to navigate for both the sufferer and therapist alike. This informative discussion will focus on the most effective approaches for managing eating disorders with comorbid OCD and anxiety. This presentation will help sufferers and therapists learn how to manage both disorders simultaneously using ERP, mindfulness, and other CBT tools, and to troubleshoot major impediments to recovery that often occur along the way. The session will conclude with a questions and answer period.
