Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, exercise addictions . . . these disorders can be devastating, but they are in no way unbeatable.

  • Recognize and identify eating disorders
  • Discover and work with the underlying causes of an eating disorder
  • Make the right choices when comparing treatment options
  • Understand what is expected in individual, group, and family therapy
  • Know when outpatient treatment is not enough and what else can be done
