Please join the Denver Metro iaedp Chapter for lunch and an engaging presentation and discussion by Norman Kim, PhD on Using Exposure and Response Prevention in Eating Disorder Treatment: Moving Towards a Transdiagnostic Conceptualization and Rationale for Transdiagnostic Treatment Approaches. Ongoing advances in our understanding of the neurobiology and genetics of Eating Disorders and Anxiety further support a more transdiagnostic approach to their conceptualization and treatment. One such transdiagnostic application is the use of Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) based approach to eating disorder treatment, for which there is a growing body of evidence. Exposure and Response Prevention is an empirically validated treatment approach based on classical conditioning and learning theory that targets learned fear responses that result in avoidant and compensatory behaviors. ERP is predicated upon learning through experience that feared consequences do not occur, and developing new non-fear associations. Using graded exposures to feared stimuli, exposures are designed to elicit emotional responses in the moment without allowing compensatory behaviors. We will present the evidence and rationale for an Anxiety based, transdiagnostic approach in conceptualizing and treating eating disorders, and present techniques for developing and using in vivo and imaginal exposures in eating disorder treatment to help patients confront and habituate to feared situations in the safety of planned and structured exposures. We will review how to apply our understanding of neuropsychological functioning in eating disorders and the mechanisms of anxiety in service of healing and overcoming the fear and threat that underlie Eating Disorders.
We are honored to have Dr. Kim present on this topic.
a. Participants will apply a transdiagnostic framework to the conceptualization and treatment of eating disorders
b. Participants will be able to apply the methodology of using exposure and response prevention in eating disorder treatment.
c. Participants will be able to develop and utilize methods for using in vivo and imaginary exposures for use in eating disorders treatment.
