Welcome to EDRC in New York City
The Eating Disorder Resource Center was the first outpatient program to develop specialized treatment for women and men who were suffering from bulimia.We now treat a wide range of eating disorders, offering individual, group, family and couples treatment for those challenged by bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia and other kinds of body dysmorphia. EDRC is especially known for integrating a psychological understanding of the disordered eating with direct intervention regarding the food or weight related behaviors.
EDRC is based in the west 50’s in Manhattan. However patients can be seen by therapists in locations throughout the city. We also have a large network of referral sources — such as physicians, psychiatrists, nutritionists and gynecologists — so that all concerns can best be addressed.
With over 30 years of experience, we are keenly aware of the latest research and clinical understandings of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorders. We are dedicated to knowing what can best help when you or someone you know is in trouble with food.

Keynote Speakers: ADAM PHILLIPS & ANDREW SOLOMON
On behalf of the William Alanson White Institute, we warmly invite you to participate in a day long exploration of the Unknowable, the Unspeakable and the Unsprung. We have chosen the icon of Medusa for our conference as Medusa represents that which may not be represented. She wanders through territory that belongs to both death and life, male and female, order and chaos, and the visible and the invisible. Medusa is literally and figuratively an ambiguous being. This conference was created with an eye towards speaking about subjects that patients and analysts are often hesitant to address or speak about head on. Like Medusa, we live in a world of ambiguity, beauty, jealousy, trauma and the unbidden. Is it any wonder that we become anxious, tongue-tied, and hesitant to speak? To speak the unspeakable is to risk walking through a door that cannot be closed, to become lost in the timelessness of the unconscious, and like Medusa, to have things emanating from our heads that cannot be controlled. We invite you to join us, and our extensive panel of prominent analysts and invited guests, as we attempt to put words, thoughts, and feelings to the unknown, the unspoken and the unsprung.
