- At the end of this course, bariatric BH clinicians will be able to:
- Demonstrate awareness of current best practices and guidelines in the BH assessment and management of patients seeking MBS in their practice.
- Identify evidence-based assessment and treatment strategies for different disordered eating behaviors that may be problematic and/or a contraindication to MBS.
- Recognize possible contraindications to MBS and formulate appropriate recommendations to address them.
This is an intensive course that will provide the foundations of knowledge relevant to the practice of bariatric behavioral health. This course will help bariatric BH clinicians to acquire relevant, evidence-based knowledge and skills, to improve competence in working with patients both pre- and post-metabolic/bariatric surgery (MBS). This course will also provide bariatric BH clinicians with a clinical framework and practical tools to use in practice with their patients.
