About the Course
Many people experience episodes during which they consume extremely large amounts of food over a short period of time while simultaneously feeling an inability to control their eating or stop. These experiences are referred to as binge eating episodes or binge episodes. Although binge episodes can be a symptom of multiple psychological disorders, frequent episodes of binge eating that are not a result of these other disorders are a separate diagnosis - binge eating disorder (BED) - in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5); American Psychiatric Association [APA], 2013. BED is linked to multiple health problems for the individual, including poor physical health and impaired psychological and social functioning.

This basic-level course is designed for healthcare professionals in various clinical practice settings including psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and mental health counselors who may come into contact with individuals exhibiting BED. This course provides information to help clinicians better identify and treat individuals with the disorder. This course provides the most current information about BED, including material on the differential diagnosis of BED from related disorders, potential causes of BED, associated features of BED, negative health implications of BED, and pharmacological and psychological options for treating BED in various settings.

Social Workers participating in this course will receive 3 (clinical) continuing education clock hours upon successful course completion.
