About the Training

This 1.5 CE training will provide an overview of popular social media platforms, including a review of the recent research on the intersection of social media, eating disorders, and body image. Providers can help clients maximize the benefits of social media and reduce its potential harm by using tools such as the Antecedent-Response-Consequence timeline (ARC) and the Social Media Literacy Checklist.

As a result of this presentation participants will be able to:

  1. Define Social Media Literacy and identify 5-7 social media red flags that can potentially interfere with eating disorder treatment and recovery.
  2. Describe an example of one group therapy activity using the Social Media Literacy Checklist.
  3. Explain the three steps of the Antecedent-Response-Consequence (ARC) intervention from Renfrew’s Unified Treatment Model to help clients identify specific antecedents and emotionally driven behaviors associated with social media use.
