Dr. James Greenblatt, the best-selling author of Answers to Anorexia, has released his updated scientific and evidence-based research to support a transformative approach to treating the most life-threatening mental illness today, Anorexia nervosa. Dr. Greenblatt has been actively treating children, adolescents, and adults with eating disorders for over 25 years, building scientific and evidence-based biologically focused research and treatment protocols that move from the roller coaster of Anorexia to an organized, biological approach to treating your patients who suffer from this hard to harness disease.

The body of scientific research has been expanded significantly over the last decade, and it continues, overwhelmingly, to corroborate the established relationship between malnutrition and brain function across every major psychiatric illness. From depression, ADHD, and schizophrenia to eating disorders, anxiety, and suicide prevention, scientific evidence confirms robust associations between discrete nutritional imbalances and the emergence, entrenchment, and/or symptomatic severity of psychiatric presentations.

The current medical model for treating anorexia desperately needs additional evidence-based strategies that will lead to better outcomes. By correcting biochemistry and healing both the brain and body, we can then support the mind and spirit through psychotherapy. This model, combined with already-existing treatment strategies, comprises an approach that is comprehensive, balanced, and, most importantly, successful.

Dr. James Greenblatt will present an effective integrative, biological model for treating anorexia in this intensive training. The model focuses on addressing malnutrition and prioritizing nutritional repletion.

By integrating best practices from traditional medicine, therapy, and functional medicine, Dr. Greenblatt equips you with the knowledge to understand and treat the underlying causes of anorexia nervosa. You’ll leave this training with a comprehensive set of clinical protocols to immediately use to help your patients achieve lasting recovery.

“This training has been an incredible and eye opening opportunity for me to understand the biology behind eating disorders. Unfortunately this information is not standard in typical training programs for eating disorder ‘specialists’ — but absolutely NEEDS TO BE! Hopefully we can be the ones to change mental health CARE thanks to Dr. Greenblatt!”

– Danielle S.

Why aren’t we treating a disorder that robs the body of nutrients… with nutrients?

100% of anorexia patients are malnourished, and mainstream treatment models are fundamentally incomplete.

Traditional treatments for anorexia prioritize psychology and BMI restoration, and tend to omit considerations of biology, as well as the connections between malnutrition and brain function. In this training, Dr. James Greenblatt, world-renowned expert on nutritional psychiatry and bestselling author of Answers to Anorexia, will discuss proactive approaches to nutrition repletion and proven, evidence-based strategies to help patients find lasting relief.

The Psychiatry Redefined Anorexia Nervosa Intensive Training

Anorexia is a biological illness fundamentally sustained by starvation and malnutrition, whether self-imposed or the product of genetic, psychosocial, or environmental circumstances. Approaching AN solely as a psychological disorder does not account for the brain’s response to a shortage of essential nutrients. Join Dr. James Greenblatt as he examines the science and impact of nutritional deficiencies arising from prolonged self-starvation and how they disrupt normal brain function. This training provides a comprehensive system of care with targeted interventions to address biologic vulnerabilities and key vitamin/mineral deficiencies, support the gut-brain axis, and restore neurotransmitter functioning.

Anorexia Intensive Curriculum

Functional & Integrative Medicine for Anorexia Nervosa (4 CME credits)

This 3-module course, presented by Dr. James Greenblatt, introduces a functional medicine model for anorexia nervosa (AN) treatment and recovery, in which the concept of anorexia nervosa is the result of a complex and biologically-mediated interplay between environmental, psychosocial, and metabolic factors is explored. Research supporting associations between metabolic abnormalities, dyslipidemia, micronutrient imbalances, and systemic inflammation will be objectively reviewed, illuminating critical treatment targets for today’s functional psychiatry practice and providing an empirically validated blueprint for personalized interventions. Upon completion, trainees will be able to substantiate the clinical utility of a functional medicine approach for anorexia nervosa, and safely incorporate evidence-based treatment strategies into existing therapeutic models to maximize patient outcomes.

The Neuroscience of Happiness: Providing Hope for Recovery from Disordered Eating

Over the last decade, new and improved brain imaging techniques have opened up novel opportunities to provide insight into what hope is and how therapy, nutrition, and drugs can catalyze the recovery process. Using a neuroscientific model, this unique course combines research and clinical knowledge with a patient’s perspective to demonstrate how hope is real, tangible, and even required in eating disorder recovery. An informative as well as entertaining presentation, this course provides a practical, neuroscientific explanation of hope, as well as concrete tools for helping clients to achieve lasting recovery.

The Oxytocin Paradox: Miracle Cure or Extraordinary Hype?

There has been increasing interest in the role of oxytocin in the development, maintenance and pathophysiology eating disorders. Oxytocin alters neural pathways that exert prosocial effects and modulates trust, fear, depression, anxiety, trauma, and neuroplasticity. Research supports the hormone reduces unconscious tendencies to focus on food, body shape and negative emotions. This course explores the potential of exogenous and endogenous oxytocin to improve the outcomes of eating disorder treatment.
