The special challenges of treating these co-occurring disorders will be discussed and this presentation highlights shame as a key force underlying and perpetuating the cyclical nature of these disorders. Clinicians will learn how to identify and help individuals break the patterns of shame that drive destructive behaviors.
Substance abuse disorders co-occur in up to 50% of eating disorder treatment recipients while 35% of the addiction treatment recipients have a co-morbid eating disorder diagnosis.
