This webinar will explore the prevalence, neurobiology and evidence-based treatments for this common, and extremely challenging. Most counselors are familiar with, or at least heard of, eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia nervosa. But we are less familiar with Binge Eating Disorder despite being four times more common in clinical practice. The American Psychiatric Association only recognized Binge Eating D/O or BED as a distinct disorder in 2013, and was first included in the DSM-5 (F50.8). This webinar will explore the prevalence, neurobiology and evidence-based treatments for this common, and extremely challenging disorder. We will pay particular attention to the influence of developmental trauma from the Adverse Childhood Experiences study on the etiology of BED, and the utility of EMDR as part of the treatment regimen.
