“Hunger: Eating Disorder Treatment in a General Psychiatric Practice”
By Kristin Miselis, MPH, MD
Eating Recovery Center


Twenty million woman and 10 million men in the United States will suffer from an eating disorder in their lifetime. Only a fraction of them will get the necessary treatment, raising their risk for long-term morbidity and mortality. Eating disorders commonly co-occur with other psychiatric conditions that are treated in general psychiatric practice. Improving the capacity of psychiatrists in general practice to diagnosis eating disorders and refer patients to the most effective level of care for treatment can improve eating disorder morbidity and mortality.


1) Learn the steps involved in a standard work-up for a suspected eating disorder
2) Understand the most effective treatment approaches for eating disorders.
3) Learn how to identify the most effective level of care for eating disorder treatment.


1) Name the core components of an eating disorder work-up (clinical interview, vital signs including height and weight, physical exam, laboratory evaluation, and EKG).
2) Name three psychotherapeutic treatment approaches that are effective at treating eating disorders (CBT with ERP, ACT, FBT, DBT, EFFT).
3) What are the four main factors to consider when deciding on the appropriate level of care for treating an eating disorder (medical stability, psychiatric stability, motivation to recover, ability to interrupt behaviors).
