Lucky Lab: ADHD and Eating Disorders
October 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are excited to announce our virtual fall Lucky Lab, “ADHD and Eating Disorders” presented by local registered dietician Paige Becker. Paige has 5+ years of outpatient experience working with both adults and adolescents in a general outpatient setting as well as in an eating disorder treatment center. She’s passionate about providing individualized nutrition care that considers the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. To help clients improve their relationships with food and their bodies, she practices from an anti-diet, HAES perspective and utilizes Intuitive Eating principles.
When: Friday, October 7th
Time: 6-8 pm PST (30 mins Q+A)
Where: Virtually through Zoom
CE: 1.5 (must be at the Zoom meeting)
At the end of this presentation attendees will:
1. Understand typical characteristics of ADHD, with special note of how it tends to present in women, girls, and femmes (as most current information about ADHD centers on the experience of ADHD in males, especially male children)
2. Understand why ADHD and eating disorders are common comorbidities
3. Learn tools for how to better validate and counsel clients with (or expected to have) ADHD or ADHD-like traits
4. Gain resources for ongoing learning about the link between ADHD and disordered eating behaviors, and how to best address these unique issues
We hope to see everyone there!
