SOWK 6090 The Complexity of Eating Disorder Recovery in the Digital Age

Through this week’s Learning Resources, you  become aware not only of the prevalence of factors involved in the  treatment of eating disorders, but also the societal, medical, and  cultural influences that help individuals develop and sustain the  unhealthy behaviors related to an eating disorder. These behaviors have  drastic impacts on health. In clinical practice, social workers need to  know about the resources available to clients living with an eating  disorder and be comfortable developing interdisciplinary, individualized  treatment plans for recovery that incorporate medical and other  specialists.

For this Discussion, you focus on guiding clients through treatment and recover


Post a 300- to 500-word response in which you address the following:

  • Provide the full DSM-5 diagnosis for the client. Remember, a full  diagnosis should include the name of the disorder, ICD-10-CM code,  specifiers, severity, and the Z codes (other conditions that may be a  focus of clinical attention). Keep in mind a diagnosis covers the most  recent 12 months.
  • Explain the diagnosis by matching the symptoms identified in the case to the specific criteria for the diagnosis.
  • Explain why it is important to use an interprofessional approach in  treatment. Identity specific professionals you would recommend for the  team, and describe how you might best utilize or focus their services.
  • Explain how you would use the client’s family to support recovery. Include specific behavioral examples.
  • Select and explain an evidence-based, focused treatment approach that you might use in your part of the overall treatment plan.
  • Explain how culture and diversity influence these disorders.  Consider how gender, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation,  and/or ethnicity/race affect the experience of living with an eating  disorder.
