Addressing Obesity, Feeding and Eating Disorders, and Body Dysmorphic Disorder among LGBTQ Youth
November 8th at 1pm
Many young LGBTQ people contend with bullying, rejection, and other identity-related stressors at school and at home. For some, these challenges negatively affect their eating behaviors and body image, which can lead to excessive weight gain or loss, as well as eating and feeding disorders and body dysmorphic disorder. This webinar will teach providers how to use a culturally-responsive approach to preventing, identifying, and treating obesity, eating and feeding disorders, and body dysmorphic disorder among LGBTQ youth. We will also discuss pediatric endocrinology considerations as they relate to weight/gain and obesity among transgender youth.
