Renfrew Center Professional Seminar – Genetic, Neurobiological and Hormonal Risk Factors for Eating Disorders: Implications for Clinical Practice

October 23 @ 5:30 am - 10:30 am PDT

Details: Professional Seminar Presented by Kelly L. Klump, Ph.D. – Advisory Committee Member, The Renfrew Center Clinical Excellence Board & MSU Foundation Endowed Professor, Department of Psychology, Michigan State University

Eating disorders exhibit significant heritability in adult women. However, developmental twin studies document dramatic shifts in the magnitude of genetic effects across adolescence that provide important clues to the genes and neurobiological systems that may be involved in the etiology of eating pathology.

This workshop will describe data from human and animal studies showing ovarian hormone influences on genetic risk for eating disorders across development in females. The implications of these data for clinical practice will be emphasized, and tips for integrating the information into clinical practice will be described.

Location: The Renfrew Center of Atlanta, Building Conference Room, Atlanta, GA
