By Walter Kaye, MD
There is a growing understanding of how powerful brain processes contribute to behaviors that create and sustain Anorexia Nervosa (AN) and Bulimia Nervosa (BN). Such knowledge has resulted in court rulings that have classified eating disorders (ED) as biologically-based brain disorders. However, relatively little has been done to apply this new understanding of the biologologic component to develop more effective ED treatment. This training by Walter Kaye, MD will use case examples to describe new treatment strategies that are based on science and research into the neurobiology of AN and BN. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
