Special Interest Study Group 9 (ticket)
Feeding and Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are prevalent in the pediatric population and current evidence suggests that a diverse range of approaches, including family-based therapy (FBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), is required for effective eating disorder treatment. And there is a need for treatments that are focused on evidence-based principles to support long-term eating disorder recovery. Participants look at the current conceptualization of pediatric feeding and eating disorders as well as evidence-based treatments, discuss assessing clinical outcomes of treatment programs, identify next steps to improve treatment delivery across all levels of care, and develop a network of multidisciplinary colleagues in the field of pediatric feeding and eating disorders.
