From Complexity to Clarity: Expert Perspective and Integrated Treatment of PTSD, Eating Disorders and Comorbidity

Timothy Brewerton, MD, DLFAPA, FAED, DFAACAP, CEDS-S combines his 40 plus years of clinical research experience and knowledge of the relevant peer-reviewed scientific data to present a synthesis that supports the major premises of the talk, including the contention that 1) EDs are linked to child maltreatment, other traumas and trauma-related comorbid disorders; 2) integrated treatment strategies that go beyond currently accepted sequential approaches are required to adequately address the complexity of ED presentations, especially in higher levels of care.

Learning Objectives:

  1. State three findings from research studies on the relationship between eating disorders and PTSD.
  2. Be familiar with self-report measures and structured interviews used in the assessment of PTSD and dissociative disorders
  3. Name three basic principles of cognitive processing therapy (CPT).
  4. Discuss the rationale as to why continuing with traditional single-disorder focused, sequential treatment models that do not prioritize integrated, trauma-focused treatment approaches are short-sighted and often inadvertently perpetuate dangerous multimorbidity.
