Course Description: Anorexia is a psychological disorder that has the potential to have grave consequences for the individual and their families. The complex dynamics that include extremely low body weight, fears of weight gain and distorted body image perceptions are intertwined within this struggle for the individual. Attachment has been supported in research to be a consistent variable in eating disorder literature. This brief 1 hour advanced course examines the role of personality, and family functioning between attachment styles and eating disorders.
