Multimedia Online Learning on Eating Disorders

Posted Jan 15 2009 4:51pm
Want to learn more about eating disorders? Although the internet has some splendidly horrific resources, solid science-based information also exists. Here are a few of my favorites:

Podcasts from the Yale University Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity

Okay, many of these are standard obesity-prevention fare. However, there are one or two that are really interesting:

" Rethinking Thin" by Gina Kolata ( based on her recent book )

" How News is Made" by Cole Kazdin

" Relation of Obesity to Disturbances in Reward from Food Instake and Anticipated Intake: An fMRI Study" by Eric Stice (I don't always agree with him, but he's a good scientist and has some interesting ideas)

And if you look in iTunes, you can find a free podcast from Kelly Brownell and Tim Walsh called "The Rudd Report: Eating Disorders and Obesity". Just search for "Rudd Report" in the iTunes store and you can download it for free, as this one doesn't appear to be on the website.

(h/t to Ai Lu for alerting me to these!)

Video Seminars from the Centre for Eating and Dieting Disorders

There are numerous video seminars on this Australian site available for free- I haven't watched all of them, but the ones I have seen are quite good.

Videos from Maudsley Parents

Maudsley Parents is an organization of parents in favor of evidence-based treatments for eating disorders, and as part of their outreach efforts have produced several lovely videos, all of which are top notch. These include:

  • Family Based Treatment for Anorexia Nervosa
  • Family Based Treatment for Bulimia Nervosa
  • Eating Disorder Research: Information for Families (with Cynthia Bulik )
  • Eating Disorders in Adolescents (with Daniel LeGrange )
  • Brain Imaging and Eating Disorders (with Walter Kaye )
  • Fighting Stigma with Science (with Cynthia Bulik)
Happy learning!
