Food Addiction: What Research & Clinical Intuition Have to Teach Us
Marci Evans MS, CEDRD-S, LDN, CPT
Food addiction is a term expressed both in popular media as well as in the scientific literature. And given how desperate and out of control so many of our clients feel, we may find ourselves treating individuals who believe they are addicted to food. This clinical dilemma is common and often leaves even the most experienced clinicians uncertain about the most effective way to proceed. In this interactive presentation, Marci will parse out the details of the scientific literature related to food addiction. A grounding in the research will inform a case presentation and interactive discussion around the clinical dilemmas when clients feel they are addicted food. Attendees will leave this presentation with a clearer view of the neurobiological phenomenon of “food addiction” and how the integration of research and clinical intuition inform our best care.
