Why attend EDFA’s Dr James Greenblatt webinar?

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a biological illness fundamentally sustained by starvation and malnutrition, whether self-imposed or the product of genetic, psycho-social, or environmental circumstances. Approaching AN solely as a psychological disorder does not account for the brain’s response to a shortage of essential nutrients. Nutritional deficiencies arising from prolonged self-starvation profoundly disrupt normal brain function, and psychological interventions alone are often not sufficient for patients whose brain and neurotransmitter functioning is sub-optimal.
