Webinar: Eating Disorders and Growth in Youth

Eating Disorders and Growth in Youth

Youth between the ages of 13-18 are at the highest risk of developing an eating disorder, and early intervention is very important for recovery. One of the signs of the presence of an eating disorder in youth is the lack of appropriate weight gain, but we receive little training on the expected weight gain in this age group. In this webinar, Jillian Walsh, RD, RP(Q) will discuss how we can detect if a child or adolescent is living with an eating disorder and the next steps we can take to kick-start their recovery. 

Topics include:

  • Expected weight gain during adolescence
  • Using growth curves to predict adolescent weight gain
  • Why BMI should never be used with youth
  • The next steps if we suspect one of our clients is living with an eating disorder
