Published research on
genetics of eating disorders can be dense and hard to read. It’s especially
hard for clinicians who might be confronted by patients, parents, or partners
who bring questions into the room in a quest to understand what the genetic research
means for them today in their recovery journey. This talk will present
up-to-date information on genetics research while focusing on how clinicians
can incorporate genetic into their case conceptualizations and address
patients’ and families’ questions about the role of genes and environment in
illness risk and recovery.
