Re-Thinking Eating Disorders: Language, Emotion, and the Brain
Prof. Barbara Pearlman integrates ideas from psychoanalysis, developmental psychology and cutting-edge neuroscience to produce a model of neural emotional processing which may underpin the development of an eating disorder.
She introduces Internal Language Enhancement Therapy (ILET) into the treatment.
The Ilet model fits neatly with recent work on mentalising.
By following the logic of how the brain functions, we can increase the power of therapy to effect change.
Host: Prof.ssa Renata Nacinovich
