Every day, experts learn more about eating disorders and the human mind. What was once thought to be a self-control issue is now considered a mental disorder. Thankfully, the 2019 National Eating Disorders Conference aims to improve professionals’ understanding of the problem. The best experts are those who continue to learn about their expertise, and the Center for Change supports them.
What Is the 2019 National Eating Disorders Conference?
The 2019 Center for Change National Eating Disorders Conference for Professionals is a gathering of advocates who want to stop eating disorders. Once each year, they come together to talk about prevention, treatment, and research regarding eating disorders. During this conference, experts hold discussions in order to inspire, collaborate, and educate others about eating disorders.
Topics That the Conference Covers
Experts plan to cover several topics at the 2019 National Eating Disorders Conference. An expert on eating disorders will lead each of the planned topics. For example, Tammy Beasley will talk about the restorative role that nutrition therapy plays in fighting eating disorders. Likewise, Margherita Mascolo plans to talk about treating complications that people suffer because of eating disorders.
The conference even gets into the benefits of using a holistic eating disorder treatment program. For instance, experts Lynette Taylor and Leslie Johnson will talk about using music therapy to aid traditional eating disorders treatments.
Eating Disorders Are a Growing Problem All Over the World
Studies show that eating disorders are a problem everywhere. However, America is home to a high number of these cases. In the U.S., people struggle with everything from overeating to not eating enough. To make matters worse, a number of problems lead to the development of these poor habits.
It’s up to professionals to create the right plan to treat eating disorders. This goal requires that they work together and share their knowledge. Only then will people with eating disorders have a fighting chance of having a better quality of life.
This conference also spreads awareness about new and developing eating disorders. The vast majority of people don’t even know about many of these conditions. It’s important to spread the word about them so that people can get proper treatment.
