Though eating disorders were historically believed to be a concern of affluent, young, White women, emerging evidence indicates that disordered eating is also present among African American and/or Black individuals. Due to lack of training, however, identifying disordered eating in this population may be challenging for providers. This webinar will provide an overview of disordered eating in African Americans, provide culturally-relevant questions to guide assessment of eating behaviors, and report emerging trends in the application of established treatments for this population.
