Trauma, PTSD and Eating Disorders: Relevance and Response

Friday, November 17, 2017; 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Peabody, Mass – 2 Corporation Way, Suite 260
Presenter: Kimberly Wick, LMHC, Program Director – Braintree Clinic, Walden Behavioral Care
** SOLD OUT **

This presentation will explore how and why eating disorder and trauma diagnoses tend to co-occur so frequently. We will discuss how symptoms of both conditions intersect and the best practices for treating both disorders concurrently. Trauma-informed care will be defined utilizing relevant case examples which demonstrate ways health care professionals can apply interventions to their own practice. Finally, we will discuss “clinician fatigue” and how professionals working with this population can minimize risk of secondary trauma and “burn out” through various self-care methods and clinical supervision.

2.0 FREE CEs will be provided to Social Workers, LMHCs, LPCs, Nurses and Psychologists. Dietitians will be given a certificate of attendance.
