"Eating Disorders" was presented on June 23, 2009; by Dr. Carl Christensen, MD, Ph.D.; Addictionologist. This program examines the evidence that eating disorders are true biopsychosocial diseases, similar to chemical dependency. It will define various eating disorders and their consequences, explore neurobiological theories of addiction, discuss screening tools used for eating disorders, and provide information on treatment options and resources for eating disorders. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual workshop series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services.
