Suicide is a major public health problem, representing a leading cause of death worldwide. Suicidal thoughts and behaviors (STBs) are even more common, with millions of people thinking about and engaging in these behaviors each year, and also highly comorbid with eating disorder symptoms. Although there is a clear and urgent need to include these outcomes in research studies, there are also many barriers that get in the way of studying these topics, particularly in children and adolescents. This webinar will focus on risk assessment and safety planning for STBs in eating disorders research, with a particular focus on online methods. This will also include a discussion of when and how to waive the need for parent/guardian consent for online studies with adolescents.

Given a large proportion of eating disorder patients have experienced interpersonal trauma, more consistently incorporating trauma-informed approaches within eating disorder assessment and treatment is recommended. Prior trauma exposure can impact ED patients' experiences in navigating eating disorder treatment. This webinar aims to give practical guidelines to clinicians and researchers regarding how to approach ED care from a trauma-informed lens, including assessment and treatment considerations.
