What's Treatment-Interfering about "Normal" Social Media and Health Practices? Therapeutic Considerations for a Modern World
Saturday | May 4, 2024
1:45 pm - 3:15 pm
(1.5 CEs)

Workshop Description:

Therapists typically create and employ treatment plans they believe will be efficacious. Yet seemingly "normal” practices such as using social media and pursuing health through diet can interfere with, undermine, or even derail their clients’/patients' healing progress. However, therapists are rarely taught to assess for or identify the potential impact of either. This evidence-informed workshop empowers clinicians to address these potential treatment obstacles. Also, important to the field’s expanding focus on inclusive treatment, this presentation includes an opportunity to explore clinician biases regarding size/body diversity, which can further impact treatment efficacy.


Learning Objectives:

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe “problematic” social media use.
  • List three symptoms that can look like mental health diagnostic criteria but may come directly from nutrition-related practices.
  • Name two ways providers can assess for or identify potentially treatment interfering aspects of social media use.
  • Identify two aspects of social media literacy.
