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.
EDRC is pleased to announce the start of a new 6-week group which will run from the beginning of June through mid July. This group is symptom-focused, with a treatment program that can start or continue the process of recovery from bingeing, purging or bodily obsession. Specific interventions will be given and discussed in which problematic behaviors are better understood and direct change can occur.
The group will be run by Adrienne Katzow for six weeks starting the week of June 2nd. The fee for the program is $60 per meeting. EDRC will be sponsoring a limited number of scholarships for those people for whom the fee is higher than what they can afford.

CBT and Psychodynamic Treatment: Can we put down our Swords?
Effective treatment of eating disorders is both an art and a science. Yet there remains a gap between what research offers and what clients require. Clinicians are caught in a murky middle, making one critical decision after another – while continually managing their innermost feelings and fears. They must integrate their acquired wisdom and lived experience with the best evidence based care, knowing that neither alone may be sufficient. The “Practice” of Practice explores how eating disorder clinicians actually “mind the gap,” incorporating new approaches and research findings – all as they respond in real times, with real lives, in their offices each day.

Take a look at what Dr. Brisman had to say in the Huffington Post about helping friends in trouble:
When you see a close friend or loved one struggling with an eating disorder, the obvious impulse is to help. But knowing the right steps to take can be difficult. In the U.S., an estimated 20 million women and 10 million men will suffer from an eating disorder during their lifetime. And disordered eating behavior can be deadly—not only are there more deaths from eating disorders than any other mental illness, but they can also cause heart failure, electrolyte imbalances and gastric ruptures. Being armed with this knowledge is one thing, but when you hear your roommate throwing up after meals, or notice that a friend is over-exercising or making drastic dietary changes, what can you actually do about it?
