Clinical Realities & Clinical Intuition: The Practice/Research Gap

Clinical Realities & Clinical Intuition:
The Practice/Research Gap
Presented by: Doug Bunnell, PhD

Wednesday, December 5
Noon - 1:00pm EST

A critical lack of integration between research and practice persists in the field of eating disorders. This webinar reviews contemporary research findings and clinical trends, and challenges false dichotomies between empirical investigation and psychotherapeutic work, mind and body, nature and nurture. A new paradigm is offered to bridge the research—practice gap.
