How does Obsessive Compulsive Disorder present itself in the context of an eating disorder? Are exposure techniques appropriate to use with eating disorder clients? Not only can it be difficult to distinguish between the presentation of these two disorders, but it is also difficult to know how and when to apply the differing treatments. As clinicians, it is important to understand the varying ways in which the two disorders overlap and how that overlap can dictate treatment.

This webinar will explore the inherent similarities and differences in OCD and eating disorders. Attendees should expect to learn how to better understand the diagnosis of each, as well as how to implement evidence-based treatments for both.
