Refer Your Patients for Eating Disorder Treatment
Specialized care is essential for the treatment of an eating disorder. The medical complications can be quite severe, and the emotional and behavioral components require intensive therapeutic interventions. Given the importance of early identification of eating disorders on prognosis and outcome, medical and behavioral health professionals are in critical positions to recognize and intervene with those who might be struggling.
In addition to screening for potential eating disorders and paying attention to warning signs, a key recommendation for medical and behavioral health professionals is to shift the focus of conversations away from the topic of BMI and diet towards a more balanced, weight-inclusive approach to health, wellness and nutrition. At Reasons Eating Disorder Center, we understand that bodies come in all shapes and sizes and that body dissatisfaction is a major risk factor for the development of an eating disorder, and we understand the dangers of weight stigma in medical and treatment settings.
