Clinical Teaching Day Session:
Virtual Pediatric Eating Disorder Day Treatment: Experiences and Future Directions

 Tue, June 08

 8:00 PM - 9:55 PM

With the need for physical distancing during the COVID pandemic, many eating disorder programs were required to move to virtual care.  For day treatment programs, this required adapting in-person treatments to a previously unused modality.  In this teaching session, representatives of pediatric eating disorder day treatment programs from across North America aim to review transitions to telehealth during the COVID pandemic and how the inclusion of telehealth impacts future, flexible program development.  Program members will discuss types of technology used, treatment approaches, and virtual models of service. Differences across programs’ models of telehealth will be highlighted.  Incorporation of different therapeutic and theoretical frameworks will be presented, and participants will learn adaptations for individual, group and family-based care in the virtual setting. Discipline specific adaptations and considerations for psychiatric, medical, and nutritional services will be compared to treatment as usual.  Strengths, barriers, limitations, and future directions for using telehealth for pediatric eating disorder day treatment will be discussed. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive consultation on incorporating telehealth into their own eating disorder programs and practice skills related to virtual service delivery. 

Learning Objective 1:
Discuss telehealth adaptations of pediatric eating disorder day treatment programs

Learning Objective 2:
Highlight how telehealth may increase and enhance access to day treatment level of care 

Learning Objective 3:
Review the uses, benefits and challenges for a multidisciplinary team and practice skills related to virtual service delivery

Clinical Teaching Day Session - Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E) for Adolescents with Eating Disorders: An Effective Alternative to Family-Based Treatment

 Wed, June 09

 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E) has demonstrated efficacy in adults with anorexia nervosa (AN) and bulimia nervosa (BN) and has been adapted for use with adolescents with eating disorders. CBT-E for younger patients has been evaluated in four cohort studies of patients aged between 13 and 19 years. Three studies included adolescents with severe AN and one was of adolescents who were not underweight with other eating disorders. The promising results obtained by these studies led the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence to recommend CBT-E for young people as an alternative to Family Based Treatment (FBT) both for AN and BN.  CBT-E has a number of advantages. It is acceptable to young people, and its collaborative nature is well suited to ambivalent young patients who may be particularly concerned about issues of control. Its transdiagnostic scope is an advantage as it is can be used treat the full range of eating disorders that occur in adolescent patients. It therefore provides a good alternative to FBT. In this workshop CBT-E for adolescents will be described in detail, together with data on its effectiveness, and the workshop will be illustrated with numerous clinical vignettes. 

Learning Objective 1:
Following the training, participants will be able to adapt CBT-E for use with adolescents

Learning Objective 2:
Following the training, participants will be able to use a “manualized” treatment in a real-world clinical setting

Learning Objective 3:
Following the training, participants will be able to understand how CBT-E differs from FBT

Clinical Teaching Day Session - Expanding intersectional approaches to include body size: Practical ways to cultivate size inclusivity in the treatment of eating disorders

 Wed, June 09

 12:30 PM - 2:30 PM


Weight discrimination and weight stigma are associated with a plethora of negative health outcomes and function as barriers to eating disorder treatment. Eating disorder professionals may unknowingly communicate weight stigmatizing attitudes, which has a negative impact on the care they provide. Historically, most weight stigma reduction research and efforts have focused primarily on targeting weight stigma experienced by white, cisgender, heterosexual women, despite research and practice consistently suggesting that weight stigma is experienced differently among other populations. In this session, the interdisciplinary group of presenters will first systematically review existing literature about weight stigma in eating disorder treatment with an emphasis on intersectional considerations. The presenters will identify and discuss how body size intersects with other identities (including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity) to create unique modes of privilege and discrimination. The presenters will discuss how this impacts the care provided to diverse individuals in the eating disorders field. Next, the presenters will discuss thin privilege and how it combines with other forms of privilege to affect treatment dynamics. Attendees will be asked to complete a presenter-developed Thin Privilege Inventory and reflect on their responses to facilitate an increased awareness of their own size privilege and associated biases. Then, attendees will be provided with practical ways for therapists, dieticians, and other treatment providers to increase size and other inclusivity in the eating disorders treatment field.  Specific examples of how evidence-based treatments have been adapted in the literature and in practice to cultivate size and other inclusivity will be provided with an emphasis on research-practice integration.

Learning Objective 1:
Following the training, participants will be able to describe how body size intersects with other identities (including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity) to create unique modes of privilege and discrimination and understand how this impacts eating disorder treatment.

Learning Objective 2:
Following the training, participants will be able to demonstrate increased an awareness of their own size privilege and how it impacts eating disorder treatment dynamics.

Learning Objective 3:
Following the training, participants will be able to identify and implement at least 4 evidence-based, specific, and practical ways to increase size and other inclusivity in their day to day clinical practice.
