Anorexia & Neurobiology: Implications for Art Therapy

ROOM 711

The 80-minute workshop will integrate didactic information and experiential techniques to introduce the neurobiological effects of eating disorders, particularly Anorexia Nervosa (Arnold & Bulik, 2013). The focus on eating disorders as a brain-based illness will provide the basis for using art therapy as a primary and adjunctive treatment intervention early in treatment as well as throughout the course of recovery. Workshop participants will engage in an experiential activity in which they will explore a healthy functioning brain, as well as a malnourished brain, to gain a deeper understanding of the overall process that takes place within the brain during artmaking. Art therapy interventions will be explored in the context of recovered brain functioning following the re-feeding process (Hinz, 2009).
