CEU Event April 7: The Overlap Between Compulsive Overeating, Binge Eating Disorder and Obesity

When does overeating become a ‘problem’? When is obesity related to compulsive overeating or binge eating? How can you tell? This workshop will address these questions and more, providing a comprehensive overview of the ‘what’ and ‘what to do about it’ regarding compulsive overeating and the new DSM-5 diagnosis, binge eating disorder (BED) and how eating disorders may interface with obesity.

Research indicates up to 30% of individuals seeking weight loss services struggle with eating disorders making these issues widely prevalent. Open to clinicians of all sorts who interface with people struggling with weight-related issues or eating disorders, this workshop will provide practical and useful techniques drawing from CBT and Mindful Eating.
