A Perfect Biopsychosocial Storm: Gender, Culture and Eating Disorders

A Perfect Biopsychosocial Storm: Gender, Culture and Eating Disorders

By Margo Maine, PHD, FAED

1.5 CE's

The single best predictor of risk to develop an eating disorder is simply being born female. In this presentation Margo Maine, PHD covers what does this gender discrepancy tell us about the cultural impact on the etiology of eating psychopathology? This presentation challenges the dominance of the medical or biogenetic model as simply too objective and too linear to answer the obvious questions: Why Women? and Why Now? It integrates what research and practice teach clinicians about the importance of gender in the development and progression of eating disorders and the ensuing implications for treatment. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the elements of a biopsychosocial approach to eating disorders.
  2. Describe the multi-determined etiology of eating disorders.
  3. Create an effective, gender-informed clinical strategy for managing eating disorders.
