Assessing Growth in Children and Adolescents for the Screening, Treatment and Prevention of Eating Disorders

Childhood and adolescence are times of growth and development and, thus, periods of increased risk of eating disorders. Assessing growth and development accurately, without weight bias, is essential for the healthcare provider in the screening, treatment and prevention of eating disorders in pediatric patients. Participants of this webinar will learn about the accurate interpretation and discussion of growth charts, as well as common interpretation mistakes, as one tool to identify, treat and prevent eating disorders in their own practice.
