Description

Eating Disorders : Neurobiology of Eating Disorders Informs Family Support in Treatment

Eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are complex biopsychosocial illnesses with multiple factors contributing to etiology and recovery. Recent research has begun to clarify the biological, brain-based nature of these illnesses and provide pathways for understanding the behaviors and complications that characterize the illnesses. This presentation provides an overview of recent updates in neurobiological research in eating disorders, how these understandings guide first-line interventions, and outlines the supports necessary for families to assist with their loved one’s recovery.

Participants who complete this workshop will be able to:

  • Identify basic signs and symptoms of an eating disorder
  • Understand the neurobiology of eating disorders
  • Implement one technique into their clinical practice to help families address common family dynamic conflicts related to their loved one’s eating disorder.
