About this Webinar:
Abstract: Dr. Bohon will present an overview of the body-brain signals that drive eating behavior before reviewing research on how those processes are impacted in the context of eating disorders. She will describe research across different eating disorder diagnoses—including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and avoidant restrictive food intake disorder—with a focus on what this body-brain connection means for recovery and supporting loved ones through treatment.
