Oregon Health Authority is hosting a virtual training series on treating eating disorders.

About this event

We’re excited to announce that we have engaged eating disorder specialist Therese Waterhous, PhD, RDN, CEDRD-S; who is bringing in Melissa Grossman, MS, LPC, and Whitney Trotter, RDN, RN, RYT, to lead a virtual training series on treating eating disorder treatment.

Eating disorders frequently develop during childhood, adolescence and during the transition from adolescence to adulthood. Children and youth benefit from screening for eating disorders for early detection and to identify those at risk of developing these disorders. The earlier an eating disorder and associated behaviors are recognized, diagnosed, and effectively treated, the better the long-term outcomes.

Effective eating disorder treatment is delivered by a multidisciplinary team composed of behavioral health/mental health providers, nutrition therapy providers and medical providers. Treatment consists of stabilizing the individual’s medical and nutritional needs while providing mental health therapies. Use of family and youth peer support services is also encouraged when appropriate in the treatment cycle.

We are pleased to provide this training, funded by Mental Health Block Grant dollars, to impart essential knowledge about eating disorders and to increase the number of skilled providers in the behavioral health workforce.
