Eating Disorder Treatment Futures: What We Can Learn from Interventions for SMI

What might eating disorder researchers and treatment providers learn from our peers working cross-diagnostically? This presentation will discuss treatment paradigms that eating disorder providers may adopt, drawing from the strengths of interventions such as the psychosocial clubhouse model of care, community health services, peer support, harm reduction, gamification, and twelve-step programs. Centering the power of shared-decision making, particularly for individuals who have engaged with eating disorder treatment multiple times, this presentation will demonstrate how meeting people where they are is more than theory, but rather an actionable step that can be taken to reduce eating disorder health disparities
