Myths and Misdiagnosis: What Clinicians Need to Know to Address Body Image and Disordered Eating in Marginalized Clients
Copyright :


Assumptions circulate around who is at risk for and who is immune to eating disorders. This impacts screening and diagnosis of folks with eating disorders, especially for marginalized folks with eating disorders. Prevention strategies, treatment, and research are geared according to these assumptions and thus misdiagnosis. These outcomes are damaging and dangerous. They limit the recognition of EDs in those who don’t fit the picture. Research, treatment, and prevention are not designed in a social justice lens and can cause harm. This workshop will address eating disorder assumptions and how misdiagnosis can occur. The workshop asks participants to be reflective and open, examining our own privileges and power in order to move forward to ensure eating disorders treatment equity, especially for marginalized populations.
