The Connecticut Women's Consortium strives to provide the best quality behavioral health education across all platforms. As with any online activity, the quality of our virtual trainings is heavily dependent on participants' individual internet connectivity; if available to you, we strongly suggest hard-wiring to your internet connection for the duration of the training. In addition, we urge you to access your virtual training utilizing a laptop or desktop computer, as mobile devices such as smart phones and iPads may lead to a diminished experience. All virtual courses count toward your in-person continuing education credit. The majority of virtual trainings are hosted through Zoom. The link to attend as well as any relevant handouts will be emailed to registered participants 2 business days ahead of the training. In purchasing a virtual training, you are acknowledging that you have read and understand the information above.

Across the country, awareness that eating disorders (ED) do not discriminate based on race, age group, socioeconomic status, size, and gender continues to increase. However, many, particularly people of color, still go undiagnosed and untreated. Is this a result of the lack of disclosure among people of color or the failure of providers to recognize and diagnose eating disorders in these individuals?
Discrimination, racism, colorism and microaggressions are toxic stressors that women of color experience. Black women experience repeated exposure to messages and life stressors, often resulting from societal, cultural, economic, or familial occurrences. Many of these messages convey African Americans must work twice as hard to receive half as much – the weight of this message is heaviest for Black women. In this training, we will discuss unique factors associated with this diverse group and address the stigma associated with EDs. We will also explore evidence-based interventions that will assist providers in creating the therapeutic “space” for people of color to share what they are experiencing.
