March 4, 2021
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Over 30 million people in the US struggle with disordered eating. It is important that clinical providers and community leaders be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of eating disorders to get more individuals the support they need and help reduce the stigma around eating disorders. Experts from Rock Recovery, a DC Metro area-based nonprofit that supports the journey to freedom from disordered eating through affordable clinical recovery and community empowerment programs, will lead this webinar series. This training will identify the role of trauma, anxiety, and cultural messages in the development of eating disorders, and outline various trauma-informed interventions used in the treatment of eating disorders which are effective with minority communities.
Presenters: Kate Jarvi, LPC, is the Clinical Program Manager for the Rock team. She specializes in both individual and group therapy for adults and teens with eating disorders. Prior to joining Rock full- time, she worked at a treatment center in Northern Virginia. Kate co-led the first eating disorder recovery group at Liberty University’s Student Counseling Services.
Kristyn Soto, MS, is the Director of Community Partnerships at Rock Recovery. Before joining the team, she served as the Director of Children’s Services at a small community center in Philadelphia, PA. Kristyn has an educational background in Developmental Psychology, having obtained her BA from Messiah University in Mechanicsburg, PA and her MS from the University of Pittsburgh.
