Toward a Biological Model: How the Brain Maintains Anorexia Nervosa

Friday, September 28th 11:30am – 1:00pm
Sandstone Care
2100 South Cherry St
Denver, CO 80222

12:00pm – 1:00pm: Presentation by Guido Frank, MD

*Lunch will be provided  

Please join the Denver Metro iaedp Chapter for lunch and an engaging presentation and discussion by Dr Guido Frank on the biological model and how the brain maintains Anorexia Nervosa.

Eating disorders are severe psychiatric disorders that are difficult to treat. There are various biological, psychological and social aspects that have been associated with eating disorders. However,  it has been difficult to develop models that tie together behavior and neurobiology to explain how those disorders develop or are maintained. In this presentation, Dr. Frank will describe the latest research findings that connect the drive for thinness, body dissatisfaction, anxiety and weight gain with brain reward response in anorexia nervosa and how this interaction could maintain the disorder and make treatment success difficult.

It is an honor to have Dr Frank present on this topic.

Learning Objectives:

1. Knowledge: The learner will be able to describe harm avoidance as an important trait in anorexia nervosa
2. Comprehension: The learner will be able to discuss how reward expectation is tied to brain dopamine activation.
3. Analysis: The learner will be able to illustrate and debate how neuroscience could be translated into pharmacological treatments in anorexia nervosa

Guido Frank, MD
Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus; Associate Medical Director, Eating Disorders Program, Children’s Hospital Colorado; Director, Developmental Brain Research Program

Dr. Frank is an associate professor in psychiatry and neuroscience at the University of Colorado and board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry. He has been conducting eating disorder research for the past 20 years and his lab has been funded by the national institute of mental health for the past 10 years. His main interest is in understanding the neurobiology underlying eating disorders and tie that knowledge together with clinical presentation. This will bridge the research – practice gap and better integrate psychotherapy and biological treatments.
