Assessment and Treatment of Latino Males with Eating Disorders: Cultural Considerations

Historically, eating disorders have been considered as a “female” issue. Although there has been a growth in the research body addressing eating disorders in males, symptoms presentation, clinical assessment and treatment are some of the aspects that we have adopted and applied from the research primarily conducted with females. Working with Latino males adds another level of complexity as cultural factors could play a unique role in the eating disorder presentation, and therefore affecting the assessment and treatment. This webinar is designed to discuss the cultural values that are important in our intervention approach when working with Latino males.
