Webinar: The Weight-Bearing Years: Eating Disorders and Body Image Despair In Adult Women

Contemporary women experience unprecedented attention to their bodies and appearance and relentless media images of bodies sculpted to perfection, but have few role models or sources of wisdom to guide their attempts to manage these pressures. Lacking other coping mechanisms, they mistakenly accept The Body Myth that controlling their weight, shape, and eating, will answer their deeper questions and needs. This webinar examines age-related similarities and differences and eating and body image disorders across the lifespan. Case material, unique clinical issues, and implications for professional training, outreach, and prevention will be discussed.
Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the range and pattern of eating disorders and body image despair currently seen in adult women
  • Appreciate how multiple sociocultural influences and the unique stressors of adult development contribute to body image issues and disordered eating in contemporary women
  • Develop effective clinical approaches to adult eating disorders, body image despair, and their impact on families
  • Distinguish the implications for prevention, outreach, and professional training
Cost: FREE
CPE: 1 unit, Level 2
