Register Here! CE 1.5 Hours

Anorexia touches down into every psychological diagnosis: trauma, hysteria, obsessive-compulsion, addiction, sadomasochism, narcissism, body dysmorphia, perversion. Yet within this kaleidoscope of dis-order, the anorexic patient has found, at last, a secret order, a religious order. This presentation offers an opportunity to venture into that silent center of anorexia – a sanctuary space that promises at once salvation and dissolution. Kathryn Harrison will present a personal history of the onset of her anorexia from adolescence, and Melissa Daum will draw upon psychoanalytic and Jungian theories to elaborate on themes of psychic retreats.

Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Describe the internal psychic world of the patient who presents with anorexia.
– Discuss treatment that addresses the patient’s modified views of their body and relationships.

Open to NPAP members and candidates I no cost
non-members I $30.00
