It is estimated that over 28 million Americans will experience an eating disorder in their lifetime. While they affect people of all ages and backgrounds, adolescents are often at heightened risk for development of eating disorders, due to a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors. Social media is one of these contributing factors, which can negatively impact self-image and body image, and in turn reinforce risk for eating disorders.
Please join us for this 2 CE presentation where we will explore the most common eating disorder diagnoses – anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder (BED), and Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder (OSFED) – by defining each disorder and identifying signs and symptoms. From there, we will share assessment ideas and tools, followed by considerations for appropriate treatment options. We will also highlight social media’s impacts on body image and self-esteem, which often generates unrealistic standards and may contribute to the development of eating disorders. Lastly, we’ll close out the presentation, within this context of digital and social media, how students can build a better relationship with their body.
- Participants will be able to identify the 4 most common eating disorders.
- Participants will be able to identify 3 warning signs of each of the 4 eating disorders.
- Participants will be able to name 3 assessment tools to assess students with eating disorders.

Ethical practice is a top priority for social workers nationally. In today’s climate of extreme division of thoughts, ideas, and opinions, social workers must remain committed to the NASW Code of Ethics.
