**Previously Recorded on 11/07/2022 - Not a Live Event**

In the post-pandemic world, therapy using telehealth has become more common place, and research is beginning to show its efficacy in more complex populations such as eating disorders. Blalock and others (2020) demonstrated that telehealth can be appropriate in more intensive setting such as intensive outpatient. Levinson and others (2021) expanded on this research. However, what are the ethical implications when treating a client with an eating disorder via telehealth? This presentation walks through the ethical considerations, common dilemmas, and assessing appropriate fit for telehealth with an eating disorder.  Individuals will learn the level of care guidelines for eating disorders, best practices for telehealth, and explore coordination of care topics.

Brandi Stalzer is a licensed therapist from the Midwest who has specialized in treating eating disorders for over ten years. She is the owner of Libra Virtual Care, a telehealth-based binge eating program. Before owning her business, she directed several eating disorder programs across the country and helped improve the quality of care for those impacted by eating disorders.

She obtained her Master's in Community Counseling from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Ms. Stalzer has spoken at many organizations on the impact of treatment interventions for eating disorders, including the Iowa Mental Health Counselor Association and the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. She has worked with college students to implement body image-focused programs. She is an advocate in the community, providing consultation on eliminating weight bias in the workplace, school, and healthcare systems.
