Food addiction: a transdiagnostic construct of increasing clinical interest
In this workshop the state of the FA field will be discussed, including different clinical populations, from eating disorders (ED) and obesity to behavioral addictions, and the potential effect of FA in therapy response. The main aim of this workshop is to give also basic clinical guidelines for the assessment and treatment of such patients and video recorded cases will be presented.
Participants will be expected to relate what they learn to their own clinical experience and to take an active role. The workshop should be of interest to all those involved in assessing and treating eating disorder, addictive hebaviours and obese patients, such as psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, dieticians, social workers and nurses.
