Janet Whitney, MA LMFT

Course Abstract:

This presentation will address factual information about eating disorders (ED), which account for the highest mortality rate of all mental illnesses. Major elements of the presentation will cover:

  1. Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and describe how these disorders differ from disordered eating.
  2. Diagnosing eating disorders: symptoms range from mild to severe cases.
  3. Myths about ED: it is not a personal choice or something that can be easily changed and how an eating disorder can be perceived by patients as their friend. Attendees will learn about presenter Janet Whitney’s personal journey during her daughter’s seven-year struggle with an eating disorder and about the eating disorder treatment program (PHP & IOP levels of care) offered at Sovereign Health’s San Clemente location. 

 Course Objectives:

  • To educate and inform the general population about eating disorders.
  • To inform the community about the eating disorder treatment program at Sovereign Health.
  • To help everyone be able to identify persons suffering from eating disorders and to give them a sense of establishing hope and belief for their future.
