Eating Disorders: Exploring Biological Predisposition and Perfect Storms

Dr. Abigail Matthews, a clinical psychologist and associate director of the Eating Disorders program at Cincinnati Children’s, joins us to discuss her newest research on eating disorders and the effects the pandemic has had. We learn more about her study, discuss types of eating disorders, biological predisposition to disordered eating and the stressors that can cause a perfect storm for illness to develop. This is a must-listen episode, particularly for parents of tweens and teens.
