Free | Rebroadcasted Professional Webinar
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (ET)

Presented by: Samantha DeCaro, PsyD - Director of Clinical Outreach and Education, The Renfrew Center

Held Online

No two brains function in the same way – as a result, eating disorder treatment should be a collaborative and highly individualized process for everyone, especially for neurodivergent individuals.

This webinar will provide an overview of recent research, unique challenges, and treatment considerations when supporting neurodivergent individuals in eating disorder recovery. This presentation will clarify the meaning of the term ‘neurodiversity’ and identify the various conditions that can co-occur for those with an eating disorder diagnosis. Participants will discover methods to make sessions and mealtimes a more supportive, healing and validating space for their neurodivergent clients.

*Please note: this is a re-broadcast and not a live presentation.
