Dana K. Voelker, PhD, CC-AASP, West Virginia University
Riley Nickols, PhD, McCallum Place Eating Disorder Centers
As a result of the significant health and sport performance implications that can occur due to disordered eating and unbalanced exercise, it is critical that sport psychology researchers and practitioners are focused on working together to address these concerns. The presenters for this webinar will (a) use the latest research to discuss the status of the prevention and treatment of eating disorders in athletes, (b) use a clinical case study to illustrate the complexities in identifying, preventing, and treating eating disorders in the sport environment, (c) share sample resources to aid in effective identification and referral, and (d) offer key directions for enhancing collaboration between researchers and practitioners to address eating disorders in sport.
This program has been approved for 1.25 hours of CE to partially meet the 6-hour CE re-certification requirement for Certified Consultants (CC-AASP).
