Binge Eating vs Emotional Eating



This live, interactive webinar will explore and compare two different forms of addictive eating patterns and identify how to distinguish binge eating from emotional eating. Both eating patterns are often equally compared, but this course will help identify eating disorders from disordered eating. Binge Eating Disorder  (BED) is the most prevalent eating disorder of all eating disorders within the DSM-5 and this course will also identify the criteria of BED and discuss diagnosis, treatment, and how to educate ourselves and our clients to recognize if what they are struggling with is an emotional eating concern or the most common eating disorder, BED.


  • Explain the difference between Binge Eating Disorder and Emotional Eating.
  • Discuss treatments/diagnosis for these eating issues.
  • Explore common myths of both emotional eating and BED.
