This is the sixth in our series of on-line training modules designed to
update practicing clinicians – primarily psychiatrists and nurse
practitioners - with respect to classes of psychotropic medications
and/or specific psychopharmacologic content areas.
We believe that these trainings will be relevant for your practice.
Importantly, we hope that they are more engaging than typical long
lectures accompanied by numerous slides, reviewing medication after medication, or study after study.
This one-hour module is designed to aid prescribing clinicians in the identification and treatment of eating disorders (binge-eating disorder, bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa), focusing on evidence-based treatments with psychotropic medications.
This module features Evelyn Attia, M.D., an international expert on eating disorders, a Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and Director of the Eating Disorders Research Program at New York State Psychiatric Institute. Additionally, David Lowenthal, M.D., J.D., a Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at CUIMC and the Medical Director of CPI, asks Dr. Attia questions that flow from the material being presented.
