Bulimia nervosa will be the disorder
In this discussion, you will choose one eating disorder and analyze the
treatment options available for that disorder as well as the rationale
for their use based on the current understanding of the biological
aspects of these conditions. Chapters 9 and 10 in your text analyze
topics on neurotransmitters, receptors, and neurotransmitter systems,
their role in feeding behaviors and satiety, and the impact of the
pathology of selected eating disorders. The “Psychological Treatment of Eating Disorders”, article and the Nutrition and Eating Disorders
video expand upon these topics to assist your integration of these
concepts as applied to neuropsychological function and dysfunction.
Include information on brain structures, nervous system pathways,
neurotransmitters/receptors, and psychological, genetic, familial,
lifestyle, and environmental factors when analyzing the etiologic
theories. Additional emphasis should be placed on relating the proposed
etiologic mechanism(s) of the disorder and the recommended treatment(s),
as well as providing rationale(s) for treatment success or failure.
Include treatments that are based on psychological, medical,
pharmacologic (drug), and other available interventions.
