Is Your Treatment Integrated?

If not, it should be.

What does that even mean?

Dr. Kathryn Zerbe explains in her newest book, Integrated Treatment for Eating Disorders: Beyond the Body Betrayed.
“Integrated treatment takes into account the biological, psychological, and cultural underpinnings of the eating disorder. It also means that clinicians who are involved in the treatment of a patient, let’s say the therapist, the nutritionist, and the medical doctor, must also work as a team.”

“In order to be effective, clinicians must hear the patient’s story, understand their unique personal history, recognize important media and cultural influences that impinge, and appreciate the growing research base of genetics, brain hormones, and medications. Patients must be educated about the importance of each domain and how it may impact them as individuals.”
