Eating disorders in sport can be challenging to navigate as a provider.  Sensitivity is needed to effectively collaborate care with sport personnel and to comprehensively address eating concerns among athletes.  This presentation will overview common misperceptions about treating athletes with eating disorders and will discuss how both research and clinical experience specific to this population can inform treatment.  Recommendations will be given to address best practices in the identification and treatment of athletes with disordered eating and unbalanced exercise.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize misperceptions about eating disorders in sport and explain how these can hinder a provider’s ability to appropriately understand and help a patient-athlete.
  2. Discuss how mistakes during treatment can be minimized or avoided.
  3. Describe how treatment targets and interventions can be unique to the athlete population.
  4. Explain how to best integrate a patient-athlete’s sport and/or training into treatment.
