This advanced seminar will explore contemporary psychological theories and multidisciplinary empirical research of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Using eating disorders as an example, we
study how culture, familial factors and personal vulnerability contribute to risk for psychiatric disorders. This course emphasizes research skills and requires completion of multiple continuing assignments. The course
is designed for students with an interest in medical school or graduate programs in clinical psychology, public health, or related fields. Students will conduct group research projects.
