About the Training

Despite occurring less frequently than other eating disorders, Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) still causes significant biopsychosocial consequences, and thus requires the same level of attention and clinical intervention that we give to other more common eating disorders.

To treat the strong, aversive emotional responses to food and eating, and the avoidance behaviors that are characteristic of ARFID, we should consider interventions that have demonstrated efficacy with other disorders with similar underlying mechanisms, such as anxiety and panic disorders. This workshop will explore the rationale and application of evidence-based, transdiagnostic interventions designed to increase emotional tolerance and decrease impairment associated with ARFID.
