Understanding Eating Disorders from a Control Mastery Perspective

Co- Sponsored by The Wright Institute

Eating Disorders present unique challenges for both the clinician and the patient seeking treatment.   In this course, we will look at different types of eating disorders, underlying causes and various treatment approaches that have been utilized in treating eating disorders.   Control Mastery Theory offers a unique approach to understanding and treating eating disorders.  The Control Mastery Theory plan formulation techniques offer an effective way to assess and treat eating disorders.   Through case studies, we will apply the concepts of plan formulations to understand eating disorders in a new way.
