What’s New in the Treatment of Binge Eating Disorder?

In 2013 BED was included in the DSM-5 as a diagnosis allowing it to become an integral part of prevalence and diagnostic protocols, screening and development of specialized treatment. It has always seemed that the lines are blurred when determining the differences between BED and Obesity, often leading many individuals misdiagnosed and left without proper treatment. This program will act as an overview of current clinical perspectives related to treatment with Adolescents and BED while also addressing nutritional and pharmacological approaches to treatment.Program Objectives:

  • Provide an update to the “gut” brain as it relates to hunger/fullness and BED
  • Recognize key components to assess BED in Adolescents
  • Understand appropriate language and clinical parameters of terminology of BED
  • Increase understanding of interpersonal factors involved in adolescent BED
  • Increase understanding of the psychological risk factors that may contribute to BED in adolescents
  • Increase understanding of clinical strategies to use with families of adolescents with BED
  • Review FDA approved interventions medicinally
  • Identify appropriateness of pharmacological and how to make suggestions to treating Physicians
  • Understanding the changes in insurance coverage and its effect on weight management in the primary care setting
