Switching Deckchairs on the Titanic: Eating Disorders as a Growing Phenomenon of Cross-Addiction

3:00-4:00PM ET
Specific to this presentation is the identification of eating disorders as a growing phenomenon of cross-addiction or “symptom substitution.” Despite that switching one form of a substance for another is well documented, the emergence or intensification of an eating disorder is often minimized or overlooked. It is suggested compulsive overeating, binge eating, bulimia, and pathological dieting are often obscured in early recovery and stand may take “center stage.” Hence, the metaphor of “switching deck chairs on the Titanic.” Practical approaches to identifying this population, providing the appropriate support, treatment, and resources are an integral part of this webinar.
