Marginalized Voices and Gender Sensitivity in the Treatment of Eating Disorders
The eating disorder patient is often depicted as a young white woman, with much of the literature and best practices narrowly geared towards this patient. Eating disorder sufferers span a range of ages, genders, ethnicities, and sexualities, and clinicians may need to confront and reconcile their own internalized beliefs in order to effectively treat a range of patients who come from varying backgrounds. This interactive discussion will explore how clinicians can improve their self-awareness; discuss best practices for treating patients who feel their diagnoses conflict with their identities; and offer insights on differing needs and concerns by population. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions and actively participate in the group discussion.
Following this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Explain how a clinician’s effectiveness may be affected by an approach that does not take into account the patient’s background and identity.
- Identify three ways a clinician can improve their self-awareness and sensitivity.
- Describe how age, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality can affect an individual’s experience of their eating disorder.
