Understanding Eating Disorders and the DSM-V


The DSM-5 will carry significant revisions in the category of the Eating Disorders, with significant additions and deletions of disorders in this category, as well as the revision or integration of others. This workshop provides an informed and engaging overview of the conceptual and criteriological changes associated with the diagnosis of eating disorders across time. Specific changes in anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, compulsive over-eating, and eating disorders not otherwise specified (EDNOS) will be outlined, as well and the anticipated integration of these disorders with those previously contained in the category of Feeding Disorders of Infancy and Childhood.
