“Eating Disorders in Children and Adolescents: Prevention, Identification & Treatment”  Presented by:  Dr. Mary Tanillo & Jim Witmer

This presentation will help school social workers more quickly and effectively identify and intervene with students who are at risk for eating disorders. Eating disorders will be reframed as “diseases of disconnection” from self and others and participants will learn relational/motivational strategies they can use to engage students and parents. We will also discuss Project ECHO® for Eating Disorders, a free monthly video-conference for school staff with ongoing opportunities for case consultation and instruction by a team of experts from the Western NY Comprehensive Care Center for Eating Disorders based at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
