Description

Problems of Plenty: Battle of the Binge

Presented by Tamara Pryor, PhD, FAED

7:45 to 8:15 am Networking, Breakfast and Registration

8:15-11:30 am Presentation and Questions

Description: Binge Eating Disorder has long been prevalent in our clients’ lives, but has only been recognized by the DSM-5 since 2013. The result has been limited research on BED compared to many other eating disorders. This presentation will focus on research related to treatment outcomes and enhanced clinical understanding based on the findings of EDCare’s Binge Eating Disorder specific treatment curriculum. Dr. Pryor will discuss both data and experience of what is effective in BED treatment, as well as identifying areas for increased focus. Join us as Dr. Pryor shares what has been learned from this underserved eating disorder subtype. See what the patients and data tell us about the long term effects of this CBT-based program.
