Guy Talk: The Unique Challenges and Winning Strategies in Treating Males with Eating Disorders

Code S12 :: Seminar Session :: 1.50 CE hours

Session Description

Although thought of as a predominantly “female” problem, eating disorders affect a surprisingly high number of males. The aim of our presentation is to provide clinicians with guidance in the treatment of males with eating disorders throughout the lifespan. We will review the unique features of eating disorder presentations in males compared to females, such as the heightened incidence of binge eating and extreme forms of exercise, that have been recently uncovered in a comprehensive study of over 1000 clients with eating disorders. These unique features of eating disorders in males will be used to describe several evidence-based treatment strategies that have shown to produce significant symptom relief in male clients, such as gradual inclusion of avoided foods into one’s diet as well as progressive reintegration into important life activities (e.g., moderate exercise, increased social connectivity). We will utilize a variety of case examples from our own practice experiences as well as those of our audience members to bring these unique treatment strategies to life. Additionally, we will include video-based demonstrations of ourselves implementing these strategies in our clinical practice.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and describe some of the key unique features of eating disorder presentations in male clients.
  • Communicate the rationale for several evidence-based strategies in treating males with eating disorders.
  • Demonstrate how to successfully implement the techniques described in the context of a variety of case examples.
