Binge Eating Disorder: Beyond the DSM-V

Rachel Porter, PsyD

Eating disorders are neurobiological disorders rooted in the brain causing medical and psychological issues. They are NOT a choice and not simply about control or weight management. They are affected by genetics, environment, and temperament. All play a role. Eating disorders are experienced by all genders, body sizes, and socio-economic statuses.

The inclusion of Binge Eating Disorder in the DSM-V was a triumph worthy of celebration- and the diagnostic criteria are all too limited in their understanding of BED. In this presentation, we will discuss the multi-faceted and complicated experience of BED, the contributing factors for developing and maintaining BED, and a road map for recovery.

Learning Objectives 

  1. Identify at least 3 aspects of BED left out of the DSM
  2. Identify at least 4 obstacles to identification and treatment of BED
  3. Identify multiple components of effective BED treatment.
