Anorexia Nervosa Through a Developmental Lens
Date: Tuesday, August 23, 2022
Presenters: Dr. Richard Kreipe MD, FAAP, FSAHM, FAED, Division of Adolescent Medicine, Department of Pediatrics
Listen to the presentation
Restrictive anorexia nervosa generally emerges in the second decade of life when a person transitions from childhood to adulthood in the process of adolescence. Thus, rather than framing this condition as a mental illness, this presentation broadens this narrow perspective to address the biological, psychological, and social challenges facing affected adolescents and their families for a more comprehensive understanding of this as a developmental illness.
