Join us for an insightful one-hour webinar delving into the intricate relationship between obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and eating disorders (ED).

Through a comprehensive exploration of comorbidity, distinctive features, and shared treatment modalities, clinicians will gain a deeper understanding of the nature of these interconnected conditions. Discover the clinical similarities and differences between OCD and ED and acquire the knowledge to make accurate differential diagnoses for clients presenting with disordered eating. Here is an invaluable no-cost opportunity to augment your expertise in the assessment and management of OCD and eating disorders.

Learning Objectives

  • Comprehend the overlapping features and shared mechanisms between obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and eating disorders.
  • Identify the key differences and unique characteristics that distinguish OCD and eating disorders, including the specific obsessions and compulsions in OCD versus the disordered eating behaviors and body image concerns in eating disorders.
  • Gain valuable insights into the clinical implications arising from the comorbidity of OCD and eating disorders including diagnostic challenges, treatment approaches, and the significance of a multidisciplinary approach in addressing both conditions concurrently.
